We are leaving Moorea
It was time to say goodbye to Moorea, this beautiful little sister of Tahiti.
You will hardly find it on most maps, and if you do, then only as a point in the endless blue Pacific. But whoever gets to know her discovers that she is a world of her own and whoever discovers her on foot discovers that she is actually huge.
Your mountains, the fertile valleys, the crystal-clear water of the lagoons and the protective coral reefs, all of this feels like a piece of home to us after all these weeks.
We sailed back to Papeete/Tahiti to bunker provisions and diesel and to try to reach the Tuamotos Archipelago, which lies northeast of the Society Islands, from here when the wind turns southeast.
