|Doug on the flying trapeze|
Well, there is a big 6' swell coming up from the south. We decided to wait a couple more days - no reason to beat ourselves up.
Then, I got sick - sinus infection. I need to be 100% for our crossing so heading to the Doc for some drugs.
We are now looking at Thursday... Cross your fingers!
When we finally head south, our first stop will be Fanning Island (Tabuaeran) - about 10 days sailing for us.
|Cleaning the rigging|
So, our dock buddies have donated a bunch of goodies for us to deliver: food, toys, movies, clothes, shoes, pretties, and even a pair of crutches.
Cruisers are wonderful about sharing whatever they have!
Next, we plan on visiting Suwarrow, in the Cook Islands. A cruisers favorite.
But, we might get sidetracked and stop at Penrhyn Island first. Some fellow cruisers just sailed through there and said it was one of their favorites. We shall see how the wind blows.
Next Samoa's and Tonga. Our final destination is Fiji - sometime in August or September. Bula!
|Filling up the liquor jugs|
Things have been a bit of a blur - too many boat projects. But, we are getting close:
- Rigging cleaned and tuned by Doug
- Dock boxes cleaned out and stuff stowed
- Boat cleaned - at least on the outside
- Provisioning almost done
- Got our Zarpe (exit out of the US)
- And more...

|Delphinia starting their journey|
There is also a lot of "goodbye's" happening - lots of our friends leaving the marina.
Steve and Debbie on Delphinia just left today. They are sailing to California and then onto Mexico - their first big journey. We wish them fair winds and following seas!
Lots going on and we are pooped and stressed, but still managing to have some fun and enjoy our last days here.
Good thing Doug and I work well together or we would have killed each other - just kidding.
We will keep you posted!
