Other side of the island!

Today was a fun and interesting day. We woke up to some pretty strong wind. We couldn’t move the boat right away like we’d planned to so we decided to go snorkeling. After a little detour to a distant motu, we decided to go sailing. The weather was perfect for sailing. We sailed back and forth on the north side of the clear blue Bora Bora lagoon for a couple of hours while practicing our tacks, jibes, and sail trim. Our sail practice continued around the lagoon to the southeast side (where we are anchored now!). It was a very tricky motor because we went through a lot of shallows but we managed with me on the helm!
