When the anchor chain run out in Nuku Hiva, our thoughts were running in past few months.  Wonderfull but very busy months have been different than our previous life.  The life has been sometimes very simple and othertimes very fast and even dangerous.  There was time when we did not believed that we can  reach Nuku Hiva this year. But all challenges during the course made it even more enjoyable to reach these paradise islands.

Next morning,  it was a sad moment when Tom –  who was helping us both in Oxnard and during the sailing from California to Nuku Hiva – had to go back home. We will remember Tom as a great guy who was always ready to play a joke or give someone a hand when needed.
