Up the Hill
We All Troop Up the Hill for the View
We went ashore at seven and parked Baby Beez safely on the other side of the town quay. Whilst we were watching some casual bailing, Albert came over to say “welcome to my island” with a toothless grin. He went on to tell us that Maupiti is home to 1,200 people and his parents taught him to speak English. A real poppet.
This happy chap was on his way to work.
Off smiling, we went in search of the bakery with Philippe (Jehol) leading the way.
Soon Ross and Diana (One White Tree), Karl, Rebecca, Sofia and Blake (Windarra) came ashore and off we went, a happy bimble up the main road.
Along the way we stopped to watch a serious sized BBQ in action.
We climbed some steps, found the path, followed some arrows and bimbled up the track.
Onward and upward.
The view was simply WOW. Beez nestled on her own, a tiny dot below (seen just above us), pity about the bonfire on the motu.
Another look at Beez.
At nine thirty we heard a whistle for the start of school.
The town and the church.
Looking left toward the runway.
Looking right, out to sea. The colours change the second the sun goes in.
Happy crew pictures of Windarra and Jehol.
Going down was harder than going up.
But I was brave.
ALL IN ALL INCREDIBLE COLOURS
