Ilot Mato from Tahina
We finally left the marina yesterday! It was a beautiful sunny day and, after paying the huge marina bill, it was great to finally get Tahina back out into new waters. We decided to head for a little island half way to the Iles des Pins called Îlot Mato. It was just the right distance for us since we didn’t leave until almost noon. We arrived with just enough light to see the reefs as we negotiated a narrow channel into a lagoon next to Mato. What a beautiful place!
We were joined by our friends on s/v Callisto and s/v Kilkea II on this trip. We all enjoyed some sun-downers and snacks over on Callisto and watched the beautiful colors of the sunset followed by the appearance of starry skies.
The only thing marring the day was the continued ache in my back. This is the second day since I managed to strain the back while changing out our batteries. Hopefully a bit of rest today on the boat will do the back some good.
