FILMING IN PALMERSTON

30 July 2010 | Palmerston Atoll in the S Pacific

I am just ending a week of filming here in Palmerston. It truly is a fascinating place with a confluence of many different factors influencing the lives of its approximately 66 inhabitants. All but six are descendants of Mr William Marsters who came here aboard a cargo vessel in 1860. He had three wives and each wife and her descendants were given a third of this tiny island....about a mile square. As you can imagine, that can be a difficult formula and my filming has been affected by it.

But purely from the visual perspective, today was particularly fascinating as I accompanied four boys in their weekly fishing off the shallow, knee high, reefs. It is net fishing and their catch are the beautiful Parrot Fish which seem to be abundant here.

Shearwater is moored to coral over a ledge that dives thousands of feet in to utter darkness. A north wind threatens on Sat/Sun and will put the boat in the direction of the reef.....so must watch that carefully.

I hope to post some new video at my next stop....which is probably the Kingdom of Tonga. So, from the S Pacific, as the sun sets off my stern....I wish you goodnight.

About:
Mango is a smart, funny, sensitive and totally unique wheaton/sheepdog. . He is my partner on this patently undoglike voyage but remains cheerful about the whole affair. [...]
Extra: Shearwater is a 47 foot, very sleek and light catamaran. She is part of a fleet of 11 that were built - its a sister ship of Shearwater that holds the unofficial speed record. 31 knots! Of the this fleet, only one has flipped...so we are on the side of good odds!
