Made it to Matuku

Hi there buddy. Hoping to be able to send this out as we sail past the island and before we go through the pass. It was a really nice sail over here last night and it will be fun adventuring and exploring another new place. This island is beautiful: high and very green. There is supposed to be a great hike up to the peak here, as well as surf, so we shall see. Hope all is well. Love you and miss you, S. Just off the s coast of Matuku   Pretty day and good visibility for the pass. Going out the Fulanga pass was an adventure with low tide going out and waves coming in...WAHOO!

We made it fine into the pass and are anchored here with Guava Jelly, Riada II, and a cat named Alexas from Italy. Just returned from a wonderful evening with the locals, doing our sevusevu and then drinking our kava with them and listening to them sing and play their melodic music. It was great and, once again, we are feeling lucky to still be here in the Lau islands. Tomorrow we hike to the peak and Friday David explores the surf breaks with one of the locals.  And the beat goes on.......Love you   Anchorage:19° 09.5S and 179° 45'E

Hola Suzi and David,

I just finished reading your hair raising and fabulous adventures this summer.
I hope you saw some of the Olympics with the So. Calif. beach VB girls winning gold (with silver trained in Emerald Bay as announced on NBC). How cool is that?
Life is passing by in Taos. My mom is currently in her last stage of life, the final coma. Reading your blog gives me hope for a brighter future, without my best friend.
Love and best wishes to you both. P.S. Glad to hear you're both making and sharing your music.
