We arrived in Rangiroa Atoll in the morning and had no trouble with the smaller passe.   Brad fixed the anchor windlass and the rest of us got in a snorkel at the “Auquarium” about midday.  We were excited to have burgers at the Snack on shore but when we got there, there were only two burgers left, no beer or coke.  The boys got the burgers and the rest of us all had some form of fish and fries.   We walked around town a bit and Lydia, Lon and I decided to  check out the feasibility of dropping Lon off at the airport with the dinghy.  If the wind calmed down, it would be an option.  Unfortunately, the landing was far from perfect and Lon ended up slipping on a very slimey boat ramp and required some stitches above his eye.  Needless to say that when he went to the airport yesterday, it was via taxi.  We had a quiet evening watching a movie and everyone tried to get a good night’s sleep.

This morning, we are getting the boat ready for passage and we hope to leave around 10:30.  There are a few things to do, so I am going to post this and get back to it.
