We've been in Majuro now since early December, and have been quite enjoying our stay here. The cruising community is quite active, with weekly dinners, occasional picnics and other parties, monthly races, weekly card games and so on. I've been working as an attorney, mainly on one case contesting the November election for a former member of the parliament, but also helping on a few others. The one case has been going slowly lately, but hopefully it will get transferred to another attorney this week so that we can go cruising to the outer islands with nothing hanging over my head. The weather was very rainy for our first month here, but has lately broken out in far more sunny days than rainy ones, and the colors in the lagoon on a bright sunny day are just mesmerizing. We just spent the weekend anchored off a small island 4 miles down the lagoon, where the snorkeling was great.
I've just added photos from American Samoa, and have lots more islands ready to add, but for some reason there isn't any caption with these pictures, so I'll see if I can figure out the problem before adding the next ones.
