Hello all Lisanne friends !
We are now on Tahiti since a week. We reluctantly left the Tuamotos after visiting Rangiroa, our last stop there. We had a great time on Rangiroa with among other three fantastic dives. One along the reef when we played with the dolphins, one sunset dive and one spectacular drift dive. We also went on a day trip over to Reef Island with snorkling in “the Aquarium” and a great lunch on the beach.
We had a great 27 hour sail down to Papeete and moored in Marina Taina. Sandy left and flew home to Victoria and Fredrik ( my son) arrived from Sweden after a 36 hour flight.
We have spent the last week working mostly with all the boat service and maintenance. Engine and generator service, repaired all broken parts, cleaned the diesel tank from dirty fuel, taken the mainsail down and repaired it at the sailmaker etc, etc. Papeete is a great place with all service facilities and spare part suppliers we need.
We are now ready to go out for a week´s cruising around Tahiti and Moorea until we have to go back to Papeete when Klas and Mike will leave the boat and fly home to Europe.
Best regards from the Lisanne crew, Eric, Fredrik, Mike and Klas.
