Mount Hiro

We’ve been waiting for wind to move on for more than a week now. First we had to sit out the passing lows and now there is a westerly breeze (for several days–that’s very unusual), so we can’t head west to Tubuai and there’s also not enough wind to take us up to Tahiti. Making the best out of the situation, we navigated Pitufa through the narrow lagoon along the northern coast and around the eastern cape where we anchored next to the pretty, rocky islet Hotuatua yesterday afternoon.

This morning we started out early to hike up the ridge of Mt. Hiro. We had picked a perfectly clear and sunny day for this hike and the views after the strenuous and steep ascent were simply breath taking.
