Huahine

We are in Huahine, about 100 nm from Tahiti and 40 nm from Bora Bora. This a beautiful anchorage. We are in 25 ft of water and can see bottom as if there was no water. The grocery store is amazing, the best we have seen outside of Tahiti. We hang out at the Huahine Yacht Club, a nice bar with a dinghy dock and a happy hour. The only downside is internet access. It is only available in a couple of places and noneof them are free.Fair winds and following seas 🙂

Fortunately Mike and Davyd had used it on a dive boat so they knew the drill.We arrived in the bay and went through the anchorage. We decided to beach the dinghy on a beautiful sand beach. We ran into Alex from Dream Catcher and said hi.At t
