Arrival in Niuatoputapu

08 August 2010 | Niuatoputapu, Tonga

We had a brief but windy passage to Tonga. Mt. Sili Sili stayed in view until nightfall. The first night at sea we never sleep well, so while some of these hops are short, we emerge very tired. We plan to stay here a few days before heading down to Vavau. We crossed the dateline, so it is actually Monday. We forgot about this as we planned our arrival for customs. We thought we would arrive on Sunday, and not be able to clear in until the next day. Instead we arrived early afternoon Monday, and will not able to clear in until tomorrow. Oh well. We just have to relax on the boat and enjoy the sunset.

There were about 10 boats in the anchorage when we arrived, and we heard them planning a feast with locals on the radio for tomorrow night. We will likely be able to join them.

I will probably change the oil and fuel filters later tonight. There is a fair bit of work involved in this relaxation. But I actually enjoy most of these jobs. The boat is our home and keeps us safe. Out here I feel more in tune with the basics of life and living.
