day 26 - land ho!

At long last, land! We dropped our anchor at 0833 after traveling 2817 nautical miles. What a beautifully lush island after weeks of nothing but the ocean... The small harbour is packed, we are anchored just outside for now. We're tired but good. We will write more once we have checked in and have rested.

We're not in Kansas anymore!

  7. Thanks everyone! We are so happy to be here! I (Kyra) called land-ho first - I first saw little Fatu Huku (for all of 10 minutes)when the clouds briefly parted - we didn't see Hiva Oa until we were 15 miles away - squalls and clouds hid her from us for a long time...
