Bon Voyage

Yesterday the lion's share of pyr8queen's family set sail on a big adventure - around the South Pacific in a grand circuit, with Pilot (the first boat) not due back nearly a year, and Ita' 'Pea 'Pea (the catamaran) not for two years.

There were quite a few assorted dock-dwellers and friends-of-family around to see them off, though nothing to compare with the blowout dock party the day before. They'd been preparing for a very long time, so with a tiny shore breeze blowing in anticipation of a Santa Ana later, and with no fanfare, they cast off and were under way. pyr8queen isn't very happy about their departure, and is staying in the family home while they're gone. Soon enough, though, it'll be our turn!

Wow. What an adventure. Where will they stop?

A dream of mine that I share with my father is to sail to Dublin then to Amsterdam.

First stop (already made landfall) in Ensenada, then they'll hop down the Mexican coast before departing for French Polynesia in April. They'll go through the Marquesas, the Tuomotus, and the Society Islands, and then leave Tahiti for Hawaii at the end of July 2009, and from Hawaii back to Los Angeles. My brother & his wife will not go to Hawaii, instead they will continue on to Niue and Tonga and Fiji, returning to Los Angeles July 2010.

When I was younger, my family traveled to New Zealand on several occasions. On two consecutive trips, we stopped over in Tahiti for a week each time. Once it was on the island of Moorea and the other time it was on the coral atoll of Rangiroa. Both islands were incredibly beautiful. I would love to do the trip again -- especially sailing to it. I'm just in awe.
