August 4, 2012 Yesterday, after our orphanage visit, we said our goodbyes to everyone as we were planning an early morning departure today. The rest of the Sail Indonesia fleet was heading off to the island of Alor for more partying, drinking, and tours. We had to leave our friends and head directly to Bali (much to the relief of my liver), a 505 mile passage. We need to park our boat at the marina in Bali in order to fly to Hawaii for our youngest son's wedding. We are sad to leave our friends and the fun times we have had with them, but--up at 5:30 am and away by 6:17 am--"We're off on the road to Bali". lThe photo is pre-dawn as we were getting ready to leave--Paikea Mist is the boat in front of us.
