Hey World!

We're still here, still moving along fast and furious and having a wonderful time.

Although we aren't doing a lot of sailing right now (hope to change that in the coming months) we are off on an adventure tomorrow that merits a bit of blurbing, and because it involves a sailboat, Sailblogs is still my prefect medium!

We are off to Labuan Bajo, Indonesia tomorrow night to meet up with our friends Michael and Gloria on s/v Paikea Mist. We haven't seen Michael since we left Opua, NZ 18 months ago, although we did have a great visit with Gloria last winter in Vancouver, BC. We're excited, to say the very absolute minimal least.

Michael and Gloria, to give you a quick update since we last saw them in Opua, spent the following season in Fiji, wintered again in New Zealand, and then headed for Vanuatu, Australia, and now, Indonesia. They've spent the last few weeks exploring the fantastic diving in various parts of Indonesia, which is surprisingly vast -- stretching from due south of Japan to almost the middle of India.

It's a mystical place to me, and I feel so odd saying "I'm going to Indonesia tomorrow!" Might as well be Jupiter. Seems about as far as Jupiter, when I ponder the 13.5 hours we'll spend in seats 64J & K on Eva Airlines, the 4.5 hours lolling about in Taipei, the 6 hours down to Denpasar, Bali, an overnight there, and then a hop over to Labuan Bajo where Michael and Gloria will pick us up.

I'd love to write a few blurbs while I'm there, posted either via HF radio with no pictures, or if we're able to get a good internet connection, we'll send photos of our adventures.

Fly Aweigh is no longer, having been ceremoniously and respectfully renamed Water Music and currently pottering in and out of all the most interesting anchorages in Eastern Australia. But Fly Aweigh is a state of mind, and we are once again, if only briefly, about to fly away!

Gotta go finish packing.
