Anse Amyot Anchorage, Toau atoll, Tuamotu, French Polynesai, South Pacific Ocean
We'll be hunkered down here in Amyot for awhile waiting for some good sailing weather to head for Tahiti. Looking at the GRIB (weather file), it could be a week. The snorkeling is reported to be excellent and we'll be getting in the water as soon as the tide turns to flood to push the clear ocean waters into the Anse Amyot cul-de-sac. On our swim to shore yesterday we counted over fifty 'Seven Finger' conch crawling along the bottom. The conch are protected here at Amyot, but according to Valentine we might sample some from another area on the atoll.
That's it for now.
