Dinghy ride to Oeno

We had to keep pinching ourselves: “Is this real?!” As we entered the lagoon, motoring the dinghy 1 mile from Aldebaran to shore, the colors just became more insane.

We had arrived at an iconic South Sea paradise. Coconut palms leaned over the white sand beach which separated the aquamarine crystal clear water from the dense palms & pine trees of the island vegetation that was home to thousands of birds that flew overhead and nested on the ground.

When we arrived it Pitcairn after sailing 3 weeks, with just ocean and sky, it felt like we had entered a parallel universe into a wayward civilization. Now we had just crossed a magic portal and arrived in Oeno, our first atoll of the South Pacific.
