The waiting game....

Last couple of days has been spent walking into town and picking up those last bits-odds and ends.  We've been waiting for the winds to die down through the channel; between the islands.  Predictions have been at 20-25knts and waves reaching 12ft.  The latter of which, I am not sure I am ready for again...
Regardless we plan to take off around noon on Friday, putting us at the Big Islands northern point around midnight.  Hopefully winds will have tapered off enough to make the 26 mile crossing to Maui's west side.  If not, we'll continue north on Maui's east side up to her midsection at Kahului Bay.
To shore or showers
Ed would like to leave the islands by the first of July.  Giving himself plenty of time to get back home (no Jerry, I will not crew this leg either.)  He may have to go well out of his way to chase the trades.  So Maui may be our last stop.
Cruise ship neighbors every Tuesday
Fun in the tide pool
Yes I'm hot but....

Native neighbors!
