Serious Kava

23 September 2011

With expectation to motorsail with ESE wind, was surprised at SSE direction which would have allowed close reach with more than a cat's paw. Sailed periodically anyway displaying pure contrariness to limit clamor emanating from bilge. Forecast rainless overcast missed by a drop or two. Scant encouragement offered next week from typically unreliable weather weasel. Hope is maintained.

Having now acquired acceptable kava and dressed appropriately, offered proper sevusevu to island chief's spokesman, Watson, who was pulled out of church due our late appearance (see above). Yet to see head guy in two attempts. Assume fear for his security as Jan is suspiciously cute and friendly. Although there may have been reference to eating, felt pretty confident of personal safety as gifts of papaya, bread fruit and taro were graciously accepted before departing toward home for green curry chook, combat cribbage and hot water shower. Mellowness pervades as gentle rocking and copious wine have their effect.
