Back to Tahiti

This visit to Moorea was less sporty than planned, because it poured down during the first week and the rain turned the footpaths into red-dirt-mudslides–no good for hiking. When the weather turned sunny we tackled the highest summit on the northern coast, Mt. Rotui, but the descent turned out to be too steep, slippery and hot for us (only shrubs and ferns grow on the slope and they provide no shadow at all). We gave up after about two thirds of the way, but at that height the views from the precariously narrow path that leads along the ridge were already great.

Today we used the northerly wind (quite an exception here) for a fast sail back to Tahiti where we’re now parked in the huge anchoring field off Marina Taina.
