We sailed north of Maupiti, the rarely-visited island in the Societies, as the sun set. Elias was the first to see the moon rise, orange and distended on the horizon. At first he thought it was a volcano. But then it became obvious that it was the moon and he said, "That's the most beautiful thing I've ever seen."
After dark the wind failed. So we're motoring. We're bound for Penrhyn, in the northern Cook Islands.
