That Something Else

The kid-boat rendezvous at Navadra Island a few weeks ago was to me a moment of appreciation of the friendships we build along our Journey. There was something else, however, that contributed to making it so special – and that had anything to do with me, or any of the other adults. Continue reading “That Something Else”

But … But … But …

It’s been a while since I last wrote here. In fact, except for the brief Update Post I made some weeks ago, I believe the last written story I posted here was the one about the Centipede that was found on deck. And that was in Tonga, a good two months ago !

So, what’s happening?

A Brief Update

It’s been a while, hasn’t it?

At least that’s how it feels to me. I haven’t posted neither here or on FB or Instagram in weeks.

And ironically we’ve had pretty decent internet all this time. No excuses.

It’s been a busy time though. At least mentally busy for me.

First off, I wasn’t able to fix Pesto in Tonga and we had to sail the 550 miles to Fiji without using the engine.

Then, in Fiji – where we are now – we hauled Pesto out of the water to have her fixed properly.

With the boat out of the water, a number of other opportunistic jobs showed up, and those kept us quite busy as well.

The haul out facility was strategically chosen so that we could meet again with our dear friends of sv Enough, and we took every opportunity to spend time with them and update our mutual stories from the last year away from one another.

And then we received my broter and his family as guests and are now cruising with them.

As busy as we’ve been, I could still have carved out time to post brief stories, like I did just now, as breakfast was being arranged. But I just didn’t feel like so.

Have I lost my story-writting MoJo?

I hope not. But for the time being I will leave it here.

Have a good week, everyone !

Video of the Week: Soothing Images – Beach in Makemo

Another one in the series of videos from our time spent in the Tuamotus last year.

I shot this video in a moment of elation while we were in Makemo, and the idea was to capture at least a small taste of that feeling on camera. I hope it did !
