Along the ICW - Day 10

Still 206 nm to go- that’s what happens when you don’t move!

Blue View - River Rules Apply

As I write this, we have completed most of the 770+ miles of the ICW from St. Augustine, FL to Norfolk, VA. We went outside into the coastal Atlantic waters for only a short stretch between Charleston and Georgetown, SC, primarily because the tides were wrong and we would have either had to wait most [...]

Along the ICW - Day 7

We were up with the sun once again and plying our way up the Waccamaw River. We were under the fixed Ocean Highway Bridge by just after 0630. Yes, there was another beautiful sunrise. Yes, I took a photo or two … and yes, I’m sharing the best one. Some things (and people) are very predictable.

Exploring in Suwarrow

12 September 2009 | Suwarrow Atoll, Cook Islands
Marcie
We are really enjoying our time in Suwarrow. Yesterday, John & Veronica (the park rangers) took us to New Island and Entrance Island where hundreds of red footed boobies, fairy terns, noddies, frigates and red-tailed tropic birds are nesting. All had babies and fledges nearby and it was photo heaven. We went to the furthest motu "Tou" the other day for an environmental cleanup and came back with a dink full of trash, old buoys, two hardhats and half a wetsuit (maybe a shark had the rest?). Speaking of sharks, lots and lots here in the lagoon...mostly black tips and grays. They're well fed and only about 3-4 feet long so they leave us alone.

The mainsail is repaired and back up, staysail and jib both needed UV stitching which we've completed along with a myriad of other chores. We're hoping to leave tomorrow for Niue if the forecast holds true.
