Feels like coming home

We reached the Gambier islands yesterday morning, exactly 3 months after we left here for the Marquesas to escape the cold southern-hemisphere winter. After 8 days of passage the calm anchorage off Rikitea is pure pleasure (despite a cold front that’s responsible for grey and rainy weather…). Anyway, it’s spring here, so soon the skies will clear again and we’ll be able to start exploring the corners of the archipelago that we’ve missed the first time round! The lush green hills here are a nice contrast to Nuku Hiva, which got browner every day with the advance of the dry season.
