Life in Neiafu Vava'u - Kingdom of Tonga

We have been hanging out here while Steve finishes up the boats. I went with Glen and Sally from Dorothy Marie to the end of the bay by dingy. managed to get a bunch of papayas! its so beautiful where we anchored.
We are away from most of the mooring bouys - have my trees all around! the water is green and calm, very peaceful where we are , just a little far from the other boats, but we love it!! feels like we are in Desolation Sound! - the kids are doing a photo scavenger hunt!! they have lots of questions to answer and when they find the stuff must take a picture of it and their team. There are 4 teams. can't wait to see them come back ! good fun! I just learned how to upload a bunch of pictures at the same tiem! I'm so excited.

Banana Trees!! like a jungle out here

Steve, Glenn and Sally at the Mermaid ! great place!

swimming at the Paradise Hotel pool, all the kids from the boats - Orca III, O'Vive, Malachi, Tin Soldier, Candine and finally New Paige. (she is Kimberly has the red hair in the back- also from Canada , Alberta!)

Hello Lovely Family,

I know I've been a little irregular with my blog talk....sorry.:(
We've had a house full of sick people...germ infested you might say! Gross! Jocelyn & Ashton have been with us, we've had a very full house. Not to mention...Jocey's very full belly!! I know mom told you, you are going to a "great" auntie again. Her due date is Ashton's birthday, Dec 01. She went for her ultrasound and found out that she is having a little girl. She has a name picked out...however,in light of Isaac becoming Ashton at the moment of arrival, you never can tell! Like mom says...you were supposed to be a Kirsten! Probably if she stuck with that you would've been all girlie homebody, not sailing all over hell's half acre! Anyway love all tonnes, just been a little busy for sitting down to write. Anytime you feel like coming home...that'd be nice. Miss you too much!
Loving you guys,

Danny Lou

Ahoy Orca III...okay, I know your crossings are wild, adventurous, risky and challenging but you sure seem to make up for them once you're anchored! Looks like you're still having a ton of fun, learning alot and all is well. Good to see you so happy with your adventure of a lifetime. Spruce Harbour Marina & Vancouver will be forever changed because of all that you'll share when you come back x 5!!!
Miss you and wishing you all a very Happy Thanksgiving - we are very "thankful" you are part of our family.
Love Heather

Happy Thanksgiving world travelers. Hope you have a nice weekend. I'd say have a nice holiday weekend but it seems to me that you're living in a state of perpetual holiday.
