The highest top of Tahiti is sticking out above the clouds. We could already
see its contours this morning while still 66 miles away. If the wind would
have favoured us instead of leaving us yesterday afternoon, we would have
been there by now. But the wind decided to shift to the WSW, exactly from
the direction we are heading to, so we are motoring into it. Luckily the
winds are light, but we would rather have sailed of course. We should be
there by the end of the afternoon. It looks like it won't rain today, just
small tradewind clouds in a sunny sky. Not too bad, really.

Meanwhile we are getting more creative with our wahoo - had it for lunch
yesterday, seasoned with Jamaican jerk on pita bread with garlic mayo and
optional mango and steamed beans. We miss our tomatoes (apparently there was
a tomato disease on Nuku Hiva, so could not get any) but replace them with
mango, nice variety!

We'll let you know when we get there!
