Hey Yawl!

We departed St Thomas in June 2008 and logged over 12,000 nautical miles and smiles while meandering through the Caribbean and across the South Pacific. We stopped about 100 times, made lots of new friends and caught-up with several old ones. We caught scores of fish, walked on fire, Tsurfed Tsunamis, drank kava, climbed a volcano, swam with manta rays and enjoyed countless sunsets. Some of it was magic and some of it was tragic but we had a good voyage all the way.

Highlights include stops in and around the islands of the British Virgin Islands, St Martin, St Barts, Antigua, Guadaloupe, Dominica, Martinique, St Vincint, Bequia, the Grenadines, Carriacou, Union, Grenada, Trinidad, Veneziela, Colombia, Panama, Galapagos, the Marquesas, Tuamotus, Society & Leewaed islands of French Polynesia, American Samoa, the Kingdom of Tonga, Fiji, Vanuatu, New Caledonia and Queensland. Most places were great and the rest were perfect!

Arrival formalities at Bundaberg was a breeze. We've been granted a year (extendable up to three years) to keep Gallivanter here without having to import the vessel. My Australian wife is estatic to be home after sailing around the entire planet with me over the past dozen years and our seven-year-old son is enjoying all the attention from this new-found side of the family.

Thus ends... and begins yet another great adventure.

All is well.

To Life!
