Video of the Week: Shark Scene in Fakarava

Ok, I am still flushing content from last year. But there is so much worth sharing. So, here I go again.

Our stay in the atoll of Fakarava, in French Polynesia was prolific in intense experiences. This video was shot by casually attaching the GoPro camera to Pesto’s transom and letting it run for a few minutes. No need to explain further. Just watch. Really.

Video of the Week: Snorkeling around the reef in Fakarava

I still haven’t found my story-writting MoJo as of yet. It isn’t all bad though, since we still have quite some content to update from last year’s season. And it is really worth checking it out !

So, continuing with our series of videos shot during our stay in the Tuamotus, French Polynesia last year.

We shot this one while snorkeling around a lively reef in the atoll of Fakarava.

New series of videos: these ones shot in the Fakarava atoll, Tuamotus !

This video complements a post I wrote about an anchorage which went from protected to exposed with a small shift in the direction of the wind.

A Brief Update

It’s been a while, hasn’t it?

At least that’s how it feels to me. I haven’t posted neither here or on FB or Instagram in weeks.

And ironically we’ve had pretty decent internet all this time. No excuses.

It’s been a busy time though. At least mentally busy for me.

First off, I wasn’t able to fix Pesto in Tonga and we had to sail the 550 miles to Fiji without using the engine.

Then, in Fiji – where we are now – we hauled Pesto out of the water to have her fixed properly.

With the boat out of the water, a number of other opportunistic jobs showed up, and those kept us quite busy as well.

The haul out facility was strategically chosen so that we could meet again with our dear friends of sv Enough, and we took every opportunity to spend time with them and update our mutual stories from the last year away from one another.

And then we received my broter and his family as guests and are now cruising with them.

As busy as we’ve been, I could still have carved out time to post brief stories, like I did just now, as breakfast was being arranged. But I just didn’t feel like so.

Have I lost my story-writting MoJo?

I hope not. But for the time being I will leave it here.

Have a good week, everyone !
