June 1 – July 2, 2014 Even though s/v Liward was anchored in Baie d’Opunohu on Moorea’s north side, Steve and Lili rented a car and drove down to see us in Ha’apiti for the day.  There were warm hugs all around when we picked them up at the stone wharf and dinghied them out … Continue reading »

port phaeton ~ a separate place

July 17 – 26, 2013 Port Phaeton seems to be in a world all to its own.  Located on the south side of the isthmus that joins Tahiti Nui (big Tahiti) and Tahiti Iti (little Tahiti), Port Phaeton is almost completely surrounded by hills.  While it was blowing 30 knots with 4 meter waves on … Continue reading »

toau to tahiti

July 15 – 17, 2013  A weather window for our passage from the Tuamotus to theSociety Islands was a difficult one to pick.  The winds were either going to be too strong or not enough, and there would be squalls.  If we missed our opportunity to depart from Toau, then we would easily have to … Continue reading »
