Finally figured how to post photos!
This one was taken from the anchorage at Oponuhu Bay, Moorea, French Polynesia. You can just see a nav light marking the channel through the reef. As a northern boy I never really appreciated that the quality of light is very different in the tropics compared to more northern (and southern) locales. A softer, more pastel kind of feeling - great for pictures.
After the refit we have decided to sell Ainia. We want something smaller that would be could for the light summer winds of Lake Ontario, although we plan to spend at least a couple of winters in the Caribbean before heading north.
