Well it has been just about two weeks since we tied up to our house here on Hayden Island.

Been a busy time. First we drove up to Neah Bay where we surprised our good friends Bob and Ann on Charisma. They made land fall a week later than we did and had to put up with yet another strong front coming from Alaska but they made it in just fine. We got our crew working hard on removing all the STUFF from the boat and now stacked in the garage. They are in the process of waxing the entire outside so Orcinius will look good for the winter. We also took them to the Oregon Zoo last week end. They got to see all the animals in their habitat. They really enjoyed that outing. This weekend we will take a little drive up the Columbia River Gorge on the Oregon Side and then back down the Washington side.

Sunday after the gorge trip we are going to make a typical Fiji feast with all the stuff we can find that would be organic to them and of course with their help. We will do our best but one thing is for sure they will have the Puaka (Pork) and Chicken.

One final note, we are making the conversion from sea dwellers to land lubbers. I came across a great deal on a Prevost Motor Coach. Low mileage and in pristine condition. So that will be our ride to LA with the boys to get them on an airplane home in about two weeks. Lisa had sold her wheels before we left back in 2011 so we had to replace those and of course the coach was a little big to drive around town so we put a Jeep Wagoneer under her seat (with a towbar of course).

I suspect this blog will become a little stale as time goes by but those of you who have wanted to contact us have been able to so good luck and cheers to all.

One more thing.... you can chase down Lisa on Facebook.
