Port Vila Provision

We didn't see much of Port Vila, Vanuatu. In fact, we checked out of the country with customs in the same meeting that we cleared in! Although we should have left immediately, we stayed a few days under the radar and went grocery shopping, caught up on internet (I joined Facebook!), had a few dinners out and worked on our boats (generator maintenance again!). But we were really just waiting for a good weather window to head west as we are now officially late for our planned arrival into Australia. With the cyclone season coming we need to think about getting over there. And to be honest, we're both ready for a good dose of the modern world.

During our passage we will not have internet so I have put a few random pictures and video into the queue to keep you entertained. But if you do want to get a day-by-day update of our conditions out at sea you can click on the below link to hear from our buddy boat, La Palapa. Roger and Tobe have become great friends of ours and since they can update their blog out at sea you might want to check in with them. Their address is as follows:

Okay, wish us luck. It's two days to New Caledonia where we hope to stop for a night or two, then another two to Chesterfield Reef, and then the final three or four days to Bundenburg, Australia. Finally arriving in true civilization! We can't wait!!!
