on our way to Tahiti

good morning from here, its 7 am on Friday . we left at 1:30 pm yesterday from Tubuai, great place!! all you cruisers really need to check out this island,. they are wonderful here and its very beautiful. Malachi has left with us and Candine is staying one more day then heading to Gambier. they are calling for 30 knot winds later today and short steep seas. swells 6 seconds apart. luckly, its forcast for a short time - 12 hours. so far we have had a good sail and have just started the motor about an hour ago. very light winds for the day is forcast. we didn't want to stay in the anchorage for the winds as it is already bouncy and would be very uncomfortable there. We should be in Papeete ( Tahiti) late sat or early sun depending on winds of course.

looking forward to stocking up with food, fuel and seeing some sights . we plan on going to Moorea also to check out the stingrays again.

hope all that are on there way to Fiji are having a good passage. keep us posted!

Tillicum - looking forward to seeing you guys! are you still in Moorea? keep us posted as well. the kids are excited to see you!!!!!

we have our lines in and hoping to catch us a Mahi Mahi - ( still had to hand wash , no luck on the laundry service for me, but I am getting better at the washing - using our feets this time!! it was fun)

not much else to say , see you in Tahiti!

have been trying to send this for 24 hours now., we have 120 nm to go to Tahiti
