Anse Amyot

Anse Amyot, Toau, Tuamotus, French Polynesia
15 48.2S 146 09.1W

We left Fakarava yesterday morning and arrived after a spirited downwind sail at Anse Amyot around 2:00. This is a beautiful little bay though there is quite a bit of current constantly running out from the lagoon. It is an easy entrance and the local restaurant has 10+ moorings to use. We managed to pick up the "big boat" mooring in the center of the group thanks to our friends Estephan and Maria on Puerto Seguro who vacated it for us. This mooring is a 1.5" line tied around a large cement block with lots of chafe gear. Seems quite secure, but different than the moorings we are used to as there is no chain. Not sure yet what the smaller moorings are like.

Yesterday afternoon was too windy and squally to do much of anything but we enjoyed an early dinner and quite night. It is still quite windy (20 kts) but we are headed into shore soon to find out what there is to do around here and make reservations for dinner tonight. A few more days here and we will say goodbye to Soggy Paws and the Tuamotus and head to Tahiti to get ready to recieve our esteemed guests (Sierra, Rob, Emma, & Zak) on the 5th.
