Yesterday I had an intention to give you a full days activity. Well we got so full that there was no time to write.
Will get back to it later.
We have been fighting thunderstorms up to 41 knots all night so we are exhausted.
But we made it through the Tairapa Pass into Manihi just as the tide was the lowest and slack in the current.
It was very tense to enter since there are corals, pearl farms etc everywhere.
The lagoon itself is probably the size of lake Mälaren (for those who live in Sweden). It is like a big sea in the sea.
Will tell you more later
Our first experience with an atoll is just very bad weather right now, it is raining and raining
