America Samoa - we have arrived!

Jake on the buoy swing in Suwarrow.
We have finally arrived in American Samoa.  The passage was uneventful until last night when I lost my cookies.  It's only the second time that's ever happened, but ugh...not good.  So needless to say, I am glad to be here.  A little note to cruisers...American Samoa (at least from the boat), it beautiful.  There are no diapers floating in the bay and the houses look well kept with well manicured lawns.  We talked to s/v Rutea who have been here a few days and they concur.  So don't let the rumors keep you from coming here.  After we get out and about, you can bet I'll give you a proper update.  At first glance, it reminds us of our days in Puerto Rico.

In the meantime, I know a lot of you are chomping at the bit for here goes.  Andy still has to squoosh his down so I can load them so for now, you get mine.  Enjoy!

There were too many sharks in Suwarrow for Jake to swim by the boat so he found an alternative way to keep cool...

James, one of the park rangers, with the French boat and their fantastic pizza!

One of the many jam sessions during our potlucks.

The girls on the French boat spent all afternoon decorating
the place where we were to have our cocktail hour.  

John, one of the park rangers, explaining how to
shred coconut and make coconut milk out of it.

Liam, on s/v Grommet, showing Jake how to use his homemade
Bow and Arrow...yikes!

Bird Island....there were lots and lots of birds.
One of the MANY poker nights aboard s/v Downtime.

Us with John and James at the Suwarrow "Yacht club" :)

Andy has many more, and much better, pictures.  I'll post them in the next few days.
