We are in Tahiti - and it is very beautiful.
We got in a few days ago, but as usual, it has taken a while to get internet. We had a great passage from Nuku Hiva, excepting the fact that the wind totally disappeared the last couple of days. It was so still day we arrived, that we motored the last 15 miles.
We are at anchor near, but not in, the capitol city. Threading our way through the reef strewn channel to our anchorage was fun, as it happened late in the day. We are still taking in Tahiti - but at first impression, it is nothing like where we have been, and more like Seattle, or at least Vashon :-)
Lots of other boats here - many of which we know. And for the first time - our "To Do" list is not arm length long. We're going to reprovision, I'll work on contracts, and we'll figure out where we want to go from here.
We will try and post some pictures soon. Our good camera is on the fritz, and so not always working. We may buy a cheap digital camera to help out on that front. The kids are well. School is getting more vigorous and regular.
Tamyn's No-no bites are fading finally. Many of you have wondered why one can't swim when having open No-no bites. Apparently it is very easy to get Staph infections from open bites if one swims in these warm waters.
It is good to hear from all of you that have written notes and comments. They mean a lot to us. More soon. Our internet time is almost out.
Owen, Carrie, Tamsyn & Griffyn
