June 30 - July 2, 2007 - Hanemoenoe, Tahuata

This place smells awesome! The hills surrounding this pretty little bay are covered with blooms. Ashore there is a coconut plantation, with lime trees, mango trees, and banana plants. We gathered up at least a hundred limes, a few coconuts and 4 mangoes during our few days here. There is too much swell for the snorkeling to be very good - the visibility is greatly reduced by the churned up sand. And there are schools of nasty little jelly fish. So, in the finest of cruising traditions, we did a bit more boatwork in a beautiful place. I washed all our cockpit cushions while Sten addressed a starting issue on our outboard - after troubleshooting the electrical system he determined that the issue was bad fuel. And, in the latest attempt to address our perennial shower pump issues, Sten replumbed and rewired one of our bilge pumps so that it replaces our shower pump.
