Welcome to the Maunie of Ardwall blog

Another video link - and preparing to move on

We've posted on one of our Raiatea videos on YouTube so those with iPads can view it here (it's also a higher-resolution version of the one posted on this blog last week).

We're spending a last day in Bora Bora before making a very short (30 mile) crossing to the island of Maupiti, which is said to be stunningly beautiful (even more so than here!!). It has a slightly tricky pass to enter into the lagoon, however, so should only be attempted in calm conditions. As it happens, calm conditions are exactly what we're going to get for the next few days -  the SE Trade Winds look as though they'll re-establish themselves on Wednesday - so this should work out very nicely.

So today will see us meeting the Gendarme in town to formally clear out  of French Polynesia, do a last shop in the supermarket and prepare Maunie for what promises to be a gentle voyage tomorrow.
