Sue adjusts the jib after a squall
The Tuamotus are, so far, our favorite part of the South Pacific. This is what the South Pacific means to us - lots of little atolls, with clear water, beautiful fish, intricate corals, isolated anchorages, a great cruising community, and friendly local people. (See our Tuamotu Map page!)
This section is a little different from the other newsletters. It starts with our (short, but rather miserable) passage down from the Marquesas to the Tuamotus on July 2-6, 2003. It then continues with newsletters on each of the 4 atolls we visited (Makemo, Tahanea, Fakarava, and Toau). These letters are not quite what we originally sent out by email. They've been rearranged so that each atoll is covered by a single newsletter, and embellished a bit where appropriate.
You can also see each of our thoughts on the Tuamotus by visiting the Makemo, Tahanea, Fakarava, and Toau sections under Destinations. But these newsletters here, while having fewer pictures, were written as we were there, so they are more current and reflect our thoughts and feelings right at the moment.
