My Ship Has Come In!

Written on: Thursday July 24th, 2008

Alas, they have arrived!  After a hopeful departure date of 19JUL and a "guaranteed" departure date of 21JUL, we have just gotten word that they are here, in Nuku'alofa.  Hallelujah!   

Jes and I went to meet the Franz and Sylvia at the Moet to welcome them ashore.  Understandably, they were spent and simply wanted to relax after so many consecutive and challenging days at sea.  We received the first glimpse of our home for the next two months, and I gotta write, it seemed like an...interesting...environment in which to exist.  No matter, they were here and we were psyched!

A re-provisioning detail was planned for the following day before we headed out.  Nonetheless, everybody was finally present and our excitement could barely be contained as we spent our last night on land before jumping on board to begin our journey north to the Ha'apais!
