As you can guess, we've arrived in Yap. We've been here a few days and so far, we're really enjoying ourselves. Check in was a breeze (less than 1 hour) and the people are extremely friendly. I've already had an old guy stop me in the middle of the grocery store and tell me if we need any bananas or coconuts, to let him know....just let John know.
The weather is acting funky though. Today, we've had winds up to 40 knots and lots of rain. Not sure how long it's going to last, but at least we know our anchor is secure. We haven't moved an inch. And good thing too...we have a reef directly behind us and a giant mega-yacht (actually, two) on our port side. It's a tight anchorage when you're next to million dollar boats and you have no insurance!
I've updated the pictures for Pulawat...hopefully you like them. Click on the posts below to see the latest...Anchored in Pulawat

We also found a few pictures we forgot from Lukenor, so I'm posting them here. If you wonder why we have so many pictures of Mariel, besides the fact that we love her, we told her to tell her mom to check in on the blog so she could see how she was doing....hopefully the message got there! Enjoy!
