Leg 16

Wings: a Decade in French Polynesia

We're returning to Wings!  As I have mentioned, we departed Cabo San Lucas on 30 March 2013 and arrived on Nuku Hiva 23 1/2 days later.  We're still here!

Repair and replacement will be the order of the day on our return.  Our main task is to remove and replace our refrigerator after 38 years.  We have some repair work on our water maker, and we must replace a valve on our dinghy, but otherwise, it's commissioning the boat.

We do hope our guests can join us, but one of the couple has vicious seasickness with which to contend, so they'll probably stay ashore and make no crossings with us.  Still, it's nice to show friends what our "other life" is like.  Note:  Work has intervened and our friends will not join us this season.
