OK, so we’re back in the states and just now starting to get readjusted. Almost three weeks in the South Pacific, two of them on the 55′ catamaran Curie, combined with a 6-hour time difference, have altered our reality in a way that forces us to take some time to readjust to our “normal” day-to-day existence. We made new friends, saw incredible sights and ate some great food. We visited six islands, did some powerful sailing, and had a few adventures (including removing a flopping fish from our bed after it jumped through a small porthole). Oh, and I took a couple of photos while we were there, too. I have only just started going through them (simply moving them onto the computer and backing them up took a better part of a day), but I’ve got people, including Patti, telling me to start posting. This is just a quick, random selection of the many great shots…you can expect to see many more over the next few weeks.
