To Hurepiti Bay, Tahaa Island
Sadly, a quarter to eleven saw us leave the beauty of Naonao Island. The wind is changing and strengthening and the exposed location would not be the place to be if things turn rough. First, cross back to the mainland.
So green, no room for beaches along the coast of Raiatea.
This journey we go just outside the reef and get to watch the inbound surf.
The noise and beauty was awesome.
We could have watched all day.
As we approached the corner the waves converged.
We enter the pass, leave the surf behind and the shallow water takes on a lovely hue.
Deep water in the bay with a motu across the entrance.
An idyllic shack with a view.
Bear smiles en route to our next cul-de-sac anchorage. Twenty miles, a fast sail and settled at three. Millennium are off in the morning for Bora Bora, we wish them Safe Winds and Following Seas.
ALL IN ALL LOVED THE SURF
