We’ve had a great day today in celebration of Drew’s birthday. This morning he strapped me in to the scuba gear and tossed me overboard for the first time! Not literally…but it was my first time scuba diving. We stayed in shallow waters, allowing me to get used to the whole concept of not needing to come up for air, and did some reef diving. The snorkel and scuba over here is turning out to be much better than that we found in Papeete, or anywhere else thus far, for that matter. This anchorage is also one of the prettiest we’ve been in. Looking around there are at least seven different shades of blue surrounding Dosia and her neighboring cruisers right now!
The cake came out fantastic and we thoroughly enjoyed our first sweets/dessert in over a month and a half! Drew wanted a spaghetti dinner so that’s what i’ve made and we’re settled in for a night with Harry Potter : )
The winds are whipping upwards of 30 to 35 knots here in this anchorage right now so as much as we don’t want to we’re probably going to head back towards town tomorrow. It will put us about an hour and a half closer to town and that much closer to the pass when we are ready to head to Tahaa on Thursday. Again, Happy, Happy Birthday Drew!
