Today we had our first motor and sail! We left the dock this morning in Raiatea after meeting up with our new friend and shipmate Marie. The sailing was exciting as we left one lagoon and traveled through open water for four hours filled with sun, rain, wind and waves. Once we arrived and took anchor we were all anxious to jump into the beautifully clear water. When we were snorkeling in the ocean, we saw corals, fish and even a turtle! After a great swim and our first boat showers, we had a great dinner. We got to use the grill to make some grilled veggies. After that were informed of the plan for tomorrow. Can’t wait to dive!
