June 1, 2014 Moorea

We’ve been anchored up in Opanahu Bay, on the north side of Moorea for the past several days.  The anchorage is part of a huge sunken volcanic crater.  Today Kelsey and I hiked up to the “Belvedere” and around the crater wall and through vast pineapple fields.  Palm trees grow below a towering canopy of pines in the forest here–it’s a strange juxtaposition.  We’re about to set sail for Huahine, just 80 miles distant.  Anchored here with the Mahina Tiare folks, and also the inventor of Spectra water makers.  Both our boat and the Spectra boat have fresh laundry drying on the lifelines, due to our “unlimited” freshwater sources!
