We've arrived in Tahiti, and are catching up on some rest. Then we'll head out to dinner tonight. We are on a Mooring off of Marina Taina. Lovely approach to the island. Beautiful tall green mountain peaks, plus the wonderful colors of a surrounding lagoon and reef. The Marquesas were mountains with no reef. The Tuamotus were all reef and no mountains. The Society Islands (tahiti, moorea, bora bora, huahine etc...) are both-- tall mountains surrounded by a lagoon and an outer fringing coral reef.
We are going to settle in here for a couple of weeks. Tahiti, and main town Papeete, which is also the capital of french polynesia, are very touristy, with cruise ships and resorts etc. But it will be nice to be able to eat out, and do a bit of shopping. We haven't been in a place with much in the way of services since April in Panama!!
We'll do some repairs, and some shopping, and relax a bit.
There are some dance competitions going on, and the annual fete national de independence is this weekend. Plus there are lots of other boats here that we know so it should be a lot of fun.
