Eat, Sleep, Wave Repeat

A travel blog entry by spenny_stubbs

... read, stare at the ocean, read, eat dinner, start my watch, read, stare at the stars, read some more and sleep. One day I got hit by a flying fish, so that was about the most excitement I had. The passage became not a game is killing miles, but rather killing time. I got pretty good at just staring at nothing for hours, letting my mind wander. I also made a point of almost never checking the time because the more I looked at the clock the slower time passed. I also ...

Ready to set sail for Moorea

A travel blog entry by munchkins


... an Island (atoll) called Rangi Roa some 570 nm to the southwest of Nuku Hiva. There is a break in the very narrow ring that makes up the atoll so that I can enter into the large lagoon and rest up for a night or two at anchor. It will take around 3.5 days of sailing to get there and then another 2 days from there to get to Moorea. From there I will either try to find more crew for the trip to Fiji or Kathie will come up and we will stay in the Tahitian Islands ...

After dinner, the 4 of us played more games before heading back to our rooms. Tomorrow we will be at the Fakarava island, which was supposed to be one of the most beautiful atoll in Tuomotu. The entire atoll is like a giant beach, we were told.

Enjoyed visiting Nuku Hiva, despite the humidity

A travel blog entry by rulian.fiske


... I got a couple of souvenirs, for my daughter and grandson, hoping they would like it.

It felt good to be back on the ship, in the air conditioned environment. But I kept thinking I should go back on shore to get something .... Oh well.

Tonight was the start of Passover and there was a seder dinner. We went with Ira and Fran and learned something I did not know before. It was very nice of the ship to put out the effort to do the seder and it was nicely done. ...
