Location: Papeete, Tahiti

Today we found ourselves on the dock in Papeete. After the usual breakfast, we broke up into a series of teams, which corresponded to different parts of the boat, and began our last and greatest BA (Boat Appreciation). We worked until 5, stopping only briefly for lunch, and Agro looks great as a result. It’s good to see her looking so good after nearly 7,000 miles of travel. After a final 5 o’clock squeeze, we headed down the street for well-deserved pizza and beers and a local restaurant and brewery called Les Trois Brasseurs, where we saw off the first shipmates to leave. The BA was a fitting way to end a great trip, and it will be sad to see everyone leave for the airport tomorrow.
