More wind with showers again , be it all at 26 deg
We went ashore to fill our air bottles in
preparation for the hull scrub then visited Ike on Rhythm to discuss the gen set
we have all come to a conclusion, we wonder whether Vetus will reply with the
same answer !
Going stir crazy onboard we decided to go across
the bay to the main village, the down wind trip was a doodle, after wandering
round the village we are of the opinion that a sort of equivalent
of Biarritz in France seen better days !, we ended up as usual at the
supermarket, focal point of the village and of course run by the chinenes,
they seem to have a vice like grip on most of the businesses in French Polynesia
,we had to taken out a small mortgage on a create of beer and a kit kat, we
then set off back to the boat , the trip is about a mile and a half,and the
gusting winds had returned, it was a rather salty saga on the way back , short
choppy seas and 30 knots of wind meant a really good soaking in our T shirts and
shorts, we all though how much more pleasant this warm water was sploshing over
us as opposed to a English channel bash at this time of year .
Anyway Capt. Fluffy had brewed up a great chilli
con cairn so that put us all in fine spirits when washed down with a bottle of
the local ale .
All wet behind the ears
