All Washed Up

13 May 2010 | Atuona, Hiva Oa, Marquesas
The Laundry

May 13

Have been reintroduced to wifi at the boat. Love it even if a skosh pricey and torpid. A few pictures are appearing on the web site with more to follow. Although some of photos on passage to Marquesas relate to immediate activities, many will be from previous adventures. Realm of possible shots was somewhat limited on passage.

Used a pool chemical bucket (thanks, Richard) to conduct laundering this morning/afternoon. Beating it on a rock at streamside would have been easier. Plenty of water at a wash stand near what passes for a dinghy dock, but six loads of one wash and two rinse and you could hang us all out to dry. Cockpit is adrape with drippy apparel as spin cycle left something to be desired.

Three speed, sixteen inch, Dahon, folding bike made its first appearance since, possibly, the Bahamas. Rotting tires (twenty years old) still manage to inhibit tube from escaping, but barely. After adjusting shifter, rode over the hill into Atuona to discover nearly everything closed for the holiday, but made it up to cemetiere to see a beautiful view and gravesites of Jacques Brel and Gauguin. Paul liked 13 year old girls and was not a favorite with the Catholic church.

Before sail to neighboring Tahuata may ride to village early tomorrow for annual marathon. Huh? Yup, sponsored by Air Tahiti. With minimum flat surface, 26 miles must be a grueling exercise. Of course, miles are statute, not nautical, and it's only the last 23 that really hurt.
