Thanks everyone for your love, support and well wishes over the past few weeks. We don’t receive blog comments at sea but we had a total blast reading them all last night once we were connected to wifi.

Sarah, thanks for sharing your pics and journey – looks like an amazing time. Sarah you are a wonderful writer – good style and voice. You have many followers who will miss the daily posts.
Thanks for keeping us all connected. Enjoy the rest of your trip. Hugs Jean (Katy’s Mom)
Thanks Jean! The pictures make it look like so much fun…. which I guess some parts were 😉 At first I didn’t think daily posts would be a good idea but the reality was that it made us feel a bit more safe and secure to be ‘checking in’ with so many people each day. We are having a blast on Nuku Hiva now!!
“GREAT PIC’s”…thanks for sharing!
Thanks Jim, I’m glad we took enough pictures to really capture the adventure!
Can someone bring me that cute little pig!!!! Xo
I’ll bring you back a pig, a goat, and a little kitten!!! xox
Thank you very much for your posts and allowing to come along with you on this adventure. Your writing and your pictures are a wonderful combination. My daughter and I met you both at the Seattle Boat Show. It’s nice to have a connection. My wife and I live aboard our boat and have been following your blog. Best of luck and congratulations!!
Thanks for following; we really appreciate it. Best of luck with your new blog site as well… I never thought I’d be into it either but it gets addictive. Cheers!
Glad you are safe on terra firma! Great pictures! Now for the really important stuff, we need better pictures of the ring, Katy.
