We're sad to be leaving New Caledonia but it feels good to be underway again.
That said, if the GRIBs can be believed, we might be leaving for Vanuatu on Monday or Tuesday.
Did I mention that I really hate passages?! -Rich
We think we'll head on to New Caledonia tomorrow.
For a bunch of pictures of Lord Howe Island, see twoatsea.com.
Oh well, we're in now, at a mooring in the lagoon at the amazing Lord Howe Island. Stunningly beautiful!
And don't get me started on current! Let's just get real and admit that humankind doesn't have the ability to predict ocean currents and those who say they can are nothing but this eras snake oil salesmen! We were supposed to have current with us now, but it's 2 knots against us.
All in all, this passage sucks!
Will probably be sitting here for up to a week. Oh well. Another town to explore!
Now we're back in Strahan (pronounced Strawn) getting ready to head up to the big island. We hope to make about a four day passage and end up somewhere around Eden as our visa time is running out and we've lingered too long in Tassie.
Now, we're anchored in a beautiful bay with no wind, despite the forecast 30 knots in the vicinity. Life in Tasmania is very good!
Legacy - Still in Suva
We're still in Suva, but we have a plan. We are hoping to leave for New Caledonia on Wednesday. From there, Nelson or somewhere in Australia, who knows. -Rich
Legacy - Sitting in Suva
Cyndi and I are sitting in Suva, waiting for weather to sail to Nelson, NZ. You can find out more about what we're up to on our blog at www.twoatsea.com.
