Just a brief update as wifi keeps dropping out. Hope to depart here on Monday, bound for Lamotrec lagoon & Yap (1200 miles) Had a good time here, particularly sailing 20 miles to Nan Madol - google it to see better pictures than we have! Bonus a couple of days later was seeing half a dozen manta rays in a feeding loop, surfacing right next to the dinghy - 3.5 metre wingspan, and close enough to touch. Also had a nice walk to a waterfall and a swim in the pool at the bottom - quite refreshing.Lamotrec is quite remote so that should be sweet, & the chief has asked us to take mail from there to Yap - no airport, and only a couple of ships per year.
Hopefully we can get better wifi in Yap & do a better update & photos. xxxxxxxxxxx
