We are back underway and remembering how this sailing thing works. It was an amazing extended stay in Nuku Hiva, full of lush tropical forests, waterfalls, and charismatic megafauna. Absolutely the highlight of my birthday was completing a boat check while on anchor watch around 4 AM, and being called up to the quarterdeck to watch one, then two, then three manta rays swimming up to our boat, floating dreamily around in our stern light, somersaulting and waving to us. It was breathtaking; I never imagined I would be seeing such a beautiful animal!

After a night of motorsailing, the silence of simply sailing is refreshing. We are under the four lowers with the JT, but there is a new sail set, called the fisherman! It is difficult to set up and only used in light winds. The excitement has been high because it is the first new sail that we have set. Also, today Chuck made the announcement that we have entered tropical waters! Woot!
