To Naonao Island
To Naonao Island, Raiatea
Silhouette and Irie II came in just after dark last night. Alan popped over this morning, so nice to see him. He was off to have his botanical tour with James and we left this lovely bay to go south.
I didn’t ask what Bear was up to.........but clearly something to do with his Bad Elf
I just took in the scenery................
..........a new position – back to the original one..........
.....more scenery for me then.......
A group of three tiny dwellings.
A pearl farm to our left.
Taputapuatea to our right, a sacred marae of the ancestors.
A pretty village.
The south of the island and Millennium over our shoulder.
Naonao Island, every bit the South Pacific of our dreams.
Certainly a shack with an amazing view.
The corner of the island - our target place to anchor.
Ahead of us shallows, coral making the water a lovely blue.
The lady of the island comes to wave in greeting.
I watch a regional meeting, fishing the topic.
I admire a dinghy, yeah right.......
Meeting over, time for a paddle. A spuddle to the surf methinks, tomorrow. OK.
Over to John and Sukanya for a game of Mexican Train Dominoes. Bear not only beat us, he trounced us, winning eight of the thirteen games. Huh.
Our view outside Beez kitchen window.
ALL IN ALL INCREDIBLE BEAUTY
THE STUNNING SOUTH PACIFIC
