We've finally left Raiatea!!! We received our injector pump back yesterday (monday) morning, and installation went well, so we promptly headed out for Bora Bora. A bit of a raucous sail with wind at 26 to 30 kts and 3 to 4 meter seas. But it went fast and the ride was good since all was on the stern. We had a fantastic meal of Ahi sushi and Grilled teriyaki Ono last night at Bloody Mary's here in Bora Bora. Today we've moved to the Bora Bora Yacht Club, and will be hitting happy hour later after trying to find some giant manta rays this afternoon. Its good to be moving again.
Tomorrow we will likely tour a pearl farm and see how that is done--its surprising we haven't done this yet since we've been in Polynesia for 3 months already.
We are presently planning to sail to Suwarrow on Thursday. This will be our next big passage--its just shy of 700 miles north west of here. We are waiting for the seas to mellow out a little. Suwarrow is a very remote atoll with nothing but a couple of park rangers. It a national park within the Cook Islands.
The picture is of Rivers' personal motu right near where we were in anchored off Raiatea. She spent a couple of weeks playing there nearly daily with Melody from Watermusick and Atlanta from Nakesa. They built forts and had the time of their lives on their own personal tropical island. Not a bad way to spend a couple of weeks of summer when you are 11 years old.
Sometime this week it will be time to hit the books and start the new school year!!
