May 20 – 21, 2013 It was nearing sunset when we arrived in Hanamoenaoa Bay at Tahuata.  As we were sailing towards the bay, we couldn’t help but notice the large Customs vessel anchored near the entrance.  Since we weren’t officially cleared into the French Polynesia yet, we were a tad nervous about our stop … Continue reading »

time is relative

                              As the days rapidly disappear behind us, and our deadline quickly approaches, my mind races with the many things left to do.  Every spare moment, when I’m not teaching school, I’m selling on craigslist, selling on ebay, adding to the … Continue reading »
