Ta-Da!

We're back in Port Townsend after our flights from Auckland to Sydney AU, Sydney to LA, then LA to Seattle. It's a long haul, but we'll look forward to doing it again even if 'Lark' moves on to a new owner.

And The Winner Is ...

Thanks to everyone who came up with an answer to my absurd question of how many screws were removed from the decks on 'Lark'.

Being Afloat

After a night in a work berth at the boatyard, we moved back to our mooring today. Nice to feel water under the hull again, and not be climbing that ladder in and out of the boat multiple times a day. We're still putting things back together, peeling off masking, and cleaning up the residual dust and [...]

More Fun In The Sun

18 September 2009 | Anchored Between Motus Tautau and Motuea, Tahaa, 16 36.24'S:151 33.45'W
Linda
So, the pearls Monica had to show us were beautiful. We chose to have her drill and string a strand of very large Keshi she had selected and laid out. Evidently they're difficult to drill due to the irregular shape and because they are solid all the way through. She said each of the pearls took six years to grow. They are incredible and all for a very good price. We'll pick them up next week.

Currently we're anchored along the reef on the west side of the island. Our friends on 'Shelette' are a few boats away.

The snorkeling between the two motus gets 5 stars. We can dinghy in, walk along a path on one of the motus out to the ocean, then drop into the water and let the current take us through the coral pass back to the dinghy. The coral here is particularly nice as well as the fish. Great fun! Tonight we're going over to 'Shelette' after dark. Brad, Mike and Gary are going lobster diving while Marnie and I have some 'girl time'. We both enjoy that immensely and manage to get together whenever we have a chance. Brad and I baked a Pineapple upside down cake yesterday so that will be the treat after their dive.
