Today is day 28 of confinement in French Polynesia, a group of islands and atolls covering an area of over 2,000 kms.
We’ve had 55 known cases of covid19 with 1 remaining in hospital. Most cases have been on the main Island of Tahiti, with a few on her sister Island Moorea, which is just 10 nautical miles away. With restrictions in place, two ferries run a limited service between the two Islands. You can only travel on these for approved commercial reasons or valid family reasons. Otherwise forget it.
I’m in Tahiti. I make the most of my one hour in a one km radius power walk for exercise every evening. From our boat in the marina and from a vantage point on my walk, I look longingly at Moorea in the distance.
We all hope that when safe, travel restrictions will be lifted but until then, we can still admire the view.
