At anchor: Cooks Anchorage, Tahiti iti

August 6th, 2009 · 1 Comment

At anchor, Cooks Anchorage, Tautira on the north coast of Tahiti iti.

Wind came up and we had water all over the decks for a while last night. Quieter second half of the night. Then the wind went back into the SSW so we came to the north coast of Tahiti Iti. Probably going around the south of the island tomorrow getting to Papeete for Sunday mid afternoon.

This anchorage was a favorite with Cook. Robert Louis Stevenson spent several weeks her being attended to by Princess
