Assume the Position

25 June 2010 | Maeva Beach, Tahiti
June 24

Shipping bits and pieces to various, out of the way corners of the world tends to be surprisingly quick, distressingly long or impossibly difficult and always extortionate. Although this morning's tracking info on standby ticket from Faaa (not a misspelling) Aeroport to LAX (money saving means of transport requiring purchase at a Delta location, e.g. Tampa) showed it in Auckland awaiting clearance, arrival was this afternoon, two days before Fedex had ventured. Cool, but earlier than planned flights seem to be full and, anyway, karma will no doubt blind side me later for this benefaction.

Still floundering a trifle as to boat positioning for week trip home. It's a price/safety/availability/hassle conundrum which, to this point, has resolved down to a mooring at Marina Taina or Med moored on the downtown quay. Remaining anchored at Maeva Beach excels everywhere but safety if it comes a blow. Additional cogitation to ensue.

Shiny new coffee press (French press) is in hand for preparation of morning drugs. Also in possession of powdered milk (to kill roaches and/or possibly, in extremis, to drink) and tinned butter (reputed best) from New Zealand.

AM activity will be to troubleshoot automatic ops of bilge pump and then goof off so long that only option will be to leave boat as is in situ.
