IceBear - IceBear arrives in Papeete,Tahiti
Well, it has been just about 4 months since we left St. Lucia, then to Santa Marta, Columbia, then to San Blas Islands, then to Shelter Bay, then to Panama Canal, then to La Playita, then Las Perlas, then to Galapagos, then to Marquesas, then to Tuamotus, then to Tahiti! Internet access has been awful but other boats have managed to blog and hold their stories until they get connectivity.
Now, in Papeete, we are finally again in a city where yes, just like all busy cities, there is traffic congestion, pick pockets, and expensive everything.But there is also beauty, hoy weather, and delightful food! We are here for a sail drive seal and rigging fixes and to get a lesson on how to sail our new Parasailor from Germany!
