The observant reader of this blog may notice the addition of the picture of the two dolphins playing in Rutea's bow wake. This is actually a link to our Picasa album where you can see other photos of our trip. Just click on the picture. At this point, I only have a small fraction of the pictures we have uploaded. I'm working on it and I suggest you check it frequently. Currently, the photos are from the time we left San Diego through our arrival at Hiva Oa in the Marquesas. I sorted through over 500 photographs to come up with those that are uploaded. I have another 2,000 photos to sort through. Please let me know if the link doesn't work.
We are enjoying New Zealand very much. The people we've met so far are very friendly even if they do talk funny. Our friend, Bob, on the McGregor 65, Braveheart, bought a minivan today so he's invited us to go see the sights of the North Island tomorrow. We haven't gotten too far from the boat since we arrived. I'll take more pictures and try to get them uploaded as well.
