Now settled into the Taina marina.Very comfortable and a Carrefour Hypermarket 400matre along the road fully stocked wi8th everything French.Prices are similar to UK but loads of fruit and New Zealand meet.
The passage here met with a mini convergence zone hence the thunder storms and torrential rain.I chose to hove to just short of Tahiti and wait for daylight and have a sleep.Probably very wise beacause the seas were huge and breaking .
What I have seen of the island is breath taking.The passge along the island past the airport is inside the reef and very calm.From the boat I look straight across to Moorea, the next island in the change.This is a place I shan´t want to leave in a hurry
