Polynesian perfection

Well friends and family...we're back!
We've returned to French Polynesia and couldn't be happier to feel the humidity on our skin, and the salt in the air. We flew into Tahiti on Tuesday night and are staying with our great friends, Gilles and Suzi in their ocean-front home. We're here for a few days, Chris is helping Gilles on his catamaran refit, and I'm relaxing. I certainly got the better end of that deal.
We leave for Apataki tomorrow and hopefully Namaste will be floating soon. Our plans are very loose for the next few months. All we know is that we'll be sailing around the Tuamotu's checking out new places we haven't visited before. We'll haul the boat in early January and return to Tahoe for the winter - can't even think about that right now :)
We'll keep everyone posted on our travels.
Lots of love-Chris and Jess

We've landed in Tahiti to spend a few days with our good friends. We leave for Apataki on Friday and hope to be floating by that afternoon. Wifi will be spotty for the next couple months, but i'll keep emailing posts, pictures will have to come later.
We have shed our layers and are again living in pareos - life is awesome!

Sweet homecoming

Chris and I are gearing up to return to Apataki next week, and after last week's snowy conditions in Tahoe, it can't come soon enough! It's been a whirlwind visit back to the States. A month in Michigan, and six weeks in Tahoe wasn't enough time to see and do everything we wanted to...but we're pumped to return to our home on the water. We'll spend about 10 weeks sailing in the Tuamotu's, with no agenda, other than to enjoy ourselves to the fullest.
