"Skerfing" off the dinghy on his boogieboard. He loved it.
view of the anchorage in Fare, Huahine from the restaurant by the dinghy dock. A
very surreal image with the dark restaurant in the foreground.

fives after a good roll!
view from an anchorage on the NW side of Taha'a with BoraBora in the
motu behind us from the same anchorage as the above shot. We are anchored here
in a 8ft shelf just a few hundred yards from the motu.

while the volcano was active! Or not.

father and his two kids crossing the lagoon at Taha'a during a spell of bad
ship seen in the lagoon on the West side of Taha'a. Apparently she is an

helped form the island.

nice Wahoo (Ono) caught between Raiatea and Suvarov.
image shows the tail of the fish showing evidence of an encounter with a shark.
Fortunately we were able to haul him in before he got another chance at it. The
fish was dead before it hit the deck. Kate says it died of shock.

of Jonah's LEGO creations. He said it was "Pegasus". Not bad!
island in the Suvarov lagoon.
view from the cockpit of the Queen Jane at anchor in the lagoon at Suvarov.
Notice the submerged reef just 100yds behind us.
Island again. The S/V Amoha to the left. The Amoha lost its rudder on the way to
Suvarov and spent 4 weeks there making repairs. It took them a week to reach the
atoll after losing the rudder only 150 miles from Suvarov.
Queen Jane underway (with poled out Genoa) passing the island of Olosega, part
of American Samoa.
island, also part of American Samoa. We tried to find a place to anchor at Ofa
but could not. Info was very sketchy on the island since it is rarely visited
due to its position 80 miles upwind of PagoPago, the only legal port of entry
for American Samoa.
