On This Day . . .
On January 23, 2018, we traveled from Tahiti to Moorea, a distance of 18 miles, so we arrived by 9:00am. Moorea is about 10 miles in width from the west to the east. There are two small, nearly symmetrical bays on the north shore. The one to the west is called 'Ōpūnohu Bay and that is where we were anchored. The tender ride is about 15 minutes around a point to a dock with a craft market that has become permanent and larger in recent years. We went ashore and wandered around the area for awhile and then returned to the ship. As always, the sail away was an awe inspiring view of the island with its majestic peaks.
