Back on Oahu Mist is being prepped for a sail back home to SF.
The refit has begun and she is looking mighty fine.
Engine rebuild, new rigging, a buff here and there and soon to sail in September! Loved our Hawaii time and the lifelong friends we have made here. A new chapter for Mist is sure to come with many more exciting adventures. Stay tuned!! Aloha.

Checking in

Just a quick update, as we have been off of Mist for about a year now.
Future updates will be made once we are back on the boat in the Spring.
Hope everyone is well around the globe and enjoying whatever and wherever you maybe. Until we check back in....
Sail safe!

Island time for Mist

10 August 2010 | Oahu, Hawaii
Aloha Friends!
It is Mist here, checking in from Oahu, Hawaii. We have been in Waikiki for a few weeks now and are located just a short walk from the madness in town ...pretty darn convenient! The marina area is called the Ali Wai. located very close to THE BUS (as it is called) so we can get around town quickly. We also found a cheap'cruising' bike at Wall Mart to help with errands and aging knees!

The weather in Oahu is a bit cooler than the Big Island and much drier. There was a shark swimming around the boat yesterday. Can't say I have ever seen that so up close and personal!! The dorsal fin circled the prey then CHOMP! Splash and that was that. Hmmm. Shall I go for a surf or not?! A swim around the boat - definitely not!

Our friends from San Diego, flew in for weeks visit, and had a great time living on Mist, touring the island, snorkeling in Sharks Cove (they SAY there are no sharks !???), Hanama Bay, observing tourists swim with dolphins at the Kahala Hilton, touring the North Shore, Makaha, Dole Pineapple Company, Waimea Falls, Sandy Beach and surfing Waikiki. We even paddled out in an outrigger canoe and rode the surf ! It was quite a week!!

Being a tourist in the Waikiki shopping district has been fun too, we werent expecting to be passing Cartier, Hermes, or Prada store this season. Quite a contrast to the simple life on the Big Island and Mexico.

Now that our guests have gone, we will surf, work on the boat, look for dry storage, rest and then begin getting ready to come back to the mainland for the winter.

We have begun organizing Mist for next season's sailing season (2011)... we will do our 'shake down' cruise from Oahu to Hanalei Bay on Kauai then continue onto Samoa.

This will be our final blog for a bit, so enjoy the rest of your summer and fall....and we will tune in again when it is time to sail on westward.
