We are all good - dodging rain storms this afternoon - but all good.
Moondance is a different story though. It has been over 3 weeks since we left La Cruz, and Moondance is funky inside and out. Dead fish on the deck, a squid inked us, serious goobers in the cockpit, and everything is covered in salt (greasy) - and that is just the top sides. Plus, we have tons of stinky laundry building up - yuck! Not much we can do about it at sea though, but she needs a good cleaning and a visit to the laundry!
We still plan to be anchored in Taiohae Bay on Nuku Hiva tomorrow afternoon - about 24 hours from now. Even if the wind doesn't cooperate, we've all ready decided to turn the engine on - at least Brian and I have. Captain Doug might have a mutiny afoot if he doesn't go along with it! It is hard to believe we are almost there. After dropping our anchor, we plan to throw a party and do some serious R&R'ing for a couple of days, and then we will start on our projects. We definitely deserve a break!
Looks like we are having fresh Dorado for dinner tonight. We almost had two, but one didn't take the hook. May we have one more, please? Can't have too much fresh fish!
Biggest Loser - have you seen that show? Well, we haven't, but have heard about it. We think they should do a Pacific crossing. What a great way to lose weight and tone up. You should see how good Doug and Brian are looking. Hubba Hubba!
Next post - picture me anchored in a beautiful bay sipping a cocktail. Ahhhh....
