Here we are standing in the water next to our private island, Ilot Moute, one of the motus on the eastern reef of Tahaa. This place has exceeded our expectations. The water is crystal clear, the sea life abundant, the weather perfect, and our company delightful. I am a bit concerned about how Sabbatical III will get out of this anchorage since she almost hit a couple of coral bombies getting in, but that will all work itself out in the end. — M.
