After our fantastic afternoon snorkel yesterday at Raroia, we said goodbye to the atolls of the Tuamotus. We spent all day sailing north to the Marquesas Islands. A stunning sunrise with scattered showers began the day, and a fiery sunset ended it. The time between was filled with deep blue ocean and a few exciting wildlife sightings. Mostly, we spent today looking ahead to tomorrow, when we will arrive at the magical Marquesas.
