COMMENT: Beach House -ANCHORED – Oponohu Bay, Moorea

Dear Friends and Family,
We are finally on the move again! Anchored at the NE corner of Oponohu Bay for one or two nights. This is the very bay that Jimmy Buffet said he
wrote his song, “One Particular Harbor” about.

We motored the 16 miles here to check the engines and autopilot/steering. All seemed normal.
It was quite the washing machine ride as well which gave the steering a good test.
This is one of the most “Bali Hai” beautiful anchorages in the South Pacific. We’ll be here a day or two and then head off toward
Huahine – making the 85 mile long trip a very long day sail. We’ll leave very early. I’ve been there before, so I’m familiar with the entry.
Scott and Nikki
