Opposite to where we were anchored we spotted a beautiful resort. Apart from its beauty, the resort means essentially to us access to wifi.
We spent all day trying to tick off all the things everyone needs to do: bank, school, talking with family and for the kids its youtube and downloading games. Even though we were at 5-star resort the wifi was on and off all the time. We understood that the whole island’s wifi is connected to satellites, not an installed cable. And the satellites are passing over us on and off, sometimes for minutes, sometimes for hours. We could find this frustrating, however the whole island’s technological infrastructure depends on these satellite: bookings, paying by credit cards, etc. Imagine working in these conditions… however it is something they are used to and we should be quite grateful with our 4G systems in Europe!
Coming back to Take Off we had beautiful sceneries just right by the boat. Big swells brushing up the coast creating some smoky waves.
And a few visitors on our bow! Beautiful birds: what a sight! However some cleaning afterwards was needed...

In the evening we went to the Kia Ora Resort where they had a traditional Polynesian Dancing Evening. Great fun!
The next morning we went off diving in the pass with the current coming in. This is Jörgen below Louise. Diving with the current is such an amazing feeling. No effort to be done. Just follow...
The visibility is amazing and this diving gave us a thousands fish to swim with!
