Drinks at Angelique II

27 December 2008 | Gizo Harbor
It was a mellow day in the anchorage. Things were quiet and perfectly flat at sunrise and we got a great picture of Whistler (shown). Hideko made a cake and we watched some Star Trek. We are on the last season of Enterprise now. After watching the whole franchise from the Original Series on, for the last couple years, we are going to be really bummed to see the final episode go by.

We went to Angelique II for sundowners at 5. At and Dia are a wonderful couple from the Netherlands. They had been sailing for 10 years in Angelique I when the prop and shaft fell out flooding the boat. She went to the bottom as a Dutch freighter rescued them. Daunted? No a chance. They took the insurance money, bought an Amel (built such that the same problem could never happen) and sailed farther and wider than before.

We're very excited because they are going to join us on the trip to the Philippines. So we will be a party of three boats now with Whistler. They are also going to buy supplies for the atolls, which was very kind of them. Cruisers are wonderful people.
