Leaving for Suwarrow Today

We have had a wonderful time here at Mopelia (aka Mauphaa). The wind has been calm, the anchorage lovely, the friendship and activities outstanding. Boats here: Soggy Paws, Don Quixote, Night Fly, Loose Pointer, Dreamaway, and Blue Moon.

We have had campfires on the beach every night, and every day there was another activity--diving, snorkeling, beach walking, coconut crab hunting, lobstering (at night), and always someone to do it with. We could easily stay here for a month.

But the wind has filled in and there's a good weather window for the 4-5 day trip to Suwarrow.

Don Quixote left yesterday for Aitutake, and everyone else is leaving today for Suwarrow.

I hope to get back-post more details and pictures from our time here. But for now... have to go get ready to haul anchor!
At 8/15/2011 5:12 PM (utc) our position was 16°46.69'S 153°57.07'W
