Updated Pictures from Pulawat (and a few more from Lukenor)

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...

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!

Dear Crew of Savannah,

I received a letter today from Mariel. She raved about the time she got to spend with you while you were anchored near her island. Thank you for posting the pictures and the great stories that accompany them.

I dream of one day taking up the cruising lifestyle like your family has. Keep up the good work.

Best wishes,

Thanks David! Tell Mariel we said hello! We really did have a fabulous time with her and think she's a really wonderful lady. Let us know if you ever have any questions about the lifestyle...It changes your life forever - in a good way!
