Matavai Bay, Mahina, Tahiti

the island of Moorea in the distance

Captain Cook set anchor here in Matavai Bay, Tahiti, to observe the 1769 Transit of Venus

inspired by Jenny Chapman’s Western Scotland photo of the sea with “wee islands just off the north coast of the Isle of Coll,” Nimbus Cat sends Jenny, Algy and our readers the sea with the island of Moorea just barely visible through the clouds.

in honor of Algy’s Birthday for Jenny Chapman and Algy

thank you all for your support for Nimbus Cat
