Visit #1

 

The transit over to Moorea is perhaps, 20 miles away.  It didn’t take long before we could see her lush mountains contrasted against the azure blue sea.  It was a perfect day.

I wonder if Chloë will remember this?

Julie and Andy,   –  considering anchorage positions as we motor into Cook’s Bay

 

 

On this particular day, the Pilot House is climate controlled, Adele is heard playing in the background, over the gentle thrum of our engine, and all systems are ‘go’.  As we slde into Cook’s Bay, each one of us is secretly looking for King Kong.  It’s a surreal experience.

Julie and I confer a bit, then decide this particular area looks good to drop the anchor for a few days.

Our day quickly ran into dusk,,, we opened a bottle of wine, played some cards, enjoyed some music, and contented ourselves with an early night.

 

Morning brought some clouds and a change of pace.  We unshipped our fast dinghy and made our way towards the Moorea Yacht Club.  We quickly got the lay-of-the-land from the YC staff, and continued our exploration by foot.

Into the main street Moorea we go.

as we’re walking along, we’re each taken with a sense of Jurassic Park.

Time for an Espresso & a treat. Jay & I have not had a worthy Vanilla Slice since we left England – until now!

After our explorations, it was back to the Yacht Club. We indulged in the Pizza, which was awesome.

 

 

Now back at INFINITY, and all safe & sound.  Our night unfolded with some Hinano’s & popcorn as we watched a movie on the upper aft-deck.  It occurred to me how fortunate we were to be here, as a family, enjoying this prehistoric vista, on May 23rd, 2016.
