We know these pics are way overdue but we haven’t had internet for over two months! Here are pics from Toau and Raroia in the Tuamotus, Anaho Bay on Nuku Hiva in the Marquesas and a couple pics from the passage to Hawaii. Sorry for not having more to post from the passage but we were naked the entire time and can’t post the pics for obvious reasons….
Hilo Bay! Dry Land!
Message in a bottle at 8N dedicated to the passing of Riley, Alyssa’s loving family dog

All that is left of the mahi Lewis caught after processing all the meat
Mahi Lewis caught to windward of Nuku Hiv on 50lb test and ocean rod with tiny 4″ jet-head squid lure
Alyssa made a perfect gaff shot near the spine behind the eyes. She was hungry and made the first shot stick!

Date night on the boat
Lewis made a custom coconut shaver for making coconut milk (Poisson cru anyone?)
Lobster trap we set out on the reef. Instead of lobster we caught a small shark and a few snapper. Fail.
This is what happens when you don’t reel in faster than the sharks can swim in Raroia
Raft #2 (with attached solar panel) found on the windward side of Raroia
Raft #1 found on windward side of Raroia
Lewis helping process fish for shipment to Papeete on Toau Atoll. This was only the first batch of fish from 3 fish traps.
We constantly had around 10 of these pilot fish cleaning our bottom in Toau and Raroia. They don’t ask for money, so we’re all about it. Check out the visibility; we’re anchored in 40′.
