Whop Your Jaw!
11 October 2017
Got a few more TTDs done today. One was laundry of the bedding. Can't expect to take on new crew and have them smelling someone else's sweaty head on the pillow cases right? Also flushed and refilled the aft water tank with new and filtered water.
Wandered downtown to look for something for dinner. I visited the "Food Trucks" for dinner last night. Ended up at a place called the "Bora Bora Lounge and Restaurant and Bar and Night Club and...who knows what else they do. Ordered an "Ambree" (Amber) Hinano. Very popular in Papeete.
No sooner had I sit down than a very attractive Tahitian waitress discreetly handed me a note with some numbers and a name. I thought, "No way!" Is she giving me her phone number? I'm way too old for this! Turns out it was just the passcode for their Wifi. What's the old Hawaiian Pidgeon phrase I'm looking for here? Oh yeah, "Whop your jaw!"
I will probably bend on the new mainsail and trusty "blade" tomorrow, weather permitting. It's a little rainy but the wind is light, especially in the early a.m.
Everyone take care and stay well. All my love.
