Island of Tahiti

27 July 2010 | Papeete
Our three weeks here in Tahiti seem to have passed in the blink of an eye. We've had so much fun that we want to continue to linger in the quiet anchorages of this beautiful island, but the calendar is pushing us on to explore and experience the rest of the Society Islands. We got to see the solar eclipse from the comfort of our boat, anchored in a blue lagoon outside Papeete. We have loved having access to a real supermarket again, stocking up on warm baguettes, creamy brie, chocolate croissants, fresh salad, vegetables, and a plentiful supplies of sweet fruits.

We also made a run down to the south of the island thru the lagoons to a magical and legendary place called Teahupoo. If you've never heard of it, do a Google search on it and you'll see why it's one of the world's most awe inspiring waves. Rob surfed everyday we were there, 4-6hrs/day to the point of exhaustion, until the last day when it got too big and out of control. Kelita kayaked thru the lagoon and into the channel to take pictures and feel the power of these amazing waves. We were the only sailboat there, anchored inside the pass for days enjoying this piece of paradise. Riding these waves in such a lovely setting was certainly a dream come true in front of our eyes.

Up next, we continue on to Morea and the rest of Society Islands. We'll post again when we can, Robert & Kelita.
