A big thank you to who came to help us celebrate this fabulous day. We couldn't have asked for it to go any better or be any more beautiful!

Spring Break 2013!

07 April 2013
We can't believe it is already spring and the month of April! It's getting scary how fast time is zipping by. Our two week break has gone way too fast as well, but we got some time in away from the dock, so guess we can't complain too much!

We started out with a fun visit from Jeff and Kathi from Bold Spirit. They left their boat in Fiji for another season and flew home to spend time in the states. We are so happy they stopped by San Diego so we could get together. We spent a couple of nights on the hook in Glorietta Bay rafted with John and Renee on Rubicon (formerly from Scarlett O'Hara). It felt like we were back out there cruising. Notice the Hotel Del in the background of our picture!

After a night in Mission Bay, we headed out to San Clemente Island to get some diving in, but 30 minutes after we got anchored, the Navy asked us to leave because they were going to be doing live fire practice. What we could say?!! So we decided to give up on the diving and head to Catalina. The water was too cold anyhow - not very inviting! We spent a couple of days in Avalon, then went to Two Harbors. We were surprised at how empty is was. We thought there would be a bunch of people out for Easter, but other than the weekend days, it was very quiet. We met a very nice couple (Kathy and Jeshua) who hiked the entire island from Avalon to Two Harbors. It was fun hearing about their adventures and we played some pool together at the Harbor Reef. From Catalina, we headed over to Dana Point for a couple of days, then down to Oceanside, and then back home. It feels good to be back - now we need a vacation from vacationing!

Merry Christmas!

This one is taken from the back side of the church - it was up to 2 meters thick as it flowed through the doors and windows.
One of the many colorful buses of Samoa!  Notice the woven baskets of coconuts in the back!
Glen taking a nice dip in the pool at the Afu Aau waterfall!  It was really pretty!
Getting a closer look!  Afu Aau Falls is down a very bumpy dirt and rock road.  As is the custom in Samoa, we first had to stop and pay the village people a few tala to enter their land.
Alofaaga blowholes!  There are several lava chasms in the area that blow seawater tens of meters into the air.  There was a man there trying to make money by throwing coconuts into the holes so visitors could see them get shot back out!
Our little rental car!  To be able to see much of Savai
A typical home on Savai
Yikes!  Many boats were thrown up on shore - luckily in Samoa, no cruising boats were damaged.  In American Samoa, however, several were destroyed and all of the 15 in the Pagopago anchorage were damaged.
These photos were taken by Nick and Tory who were crewing on Kalalau.
It was a nice new SUV!
The devastation has been amazing - these poor people.
The buses in Samoa are all painted with bright colors and fun designs.  They are also almost always crowded!
Part of the vegetable market in Apia.  The Samoans LOVE their taro!
A beautiful banyan tree along our walk from the marina to the main part of town!
