Hawaii   5 comments

Once checked in at the marine office it was time to explore, 10 minutes later that was complete, there wasn’t a lot around, the marine itself was very nice, new and with good facilities, but a long way from anywhere, ok if you had a car.

Talking of cars, I found this beauty in the car park.

Further around the bay were four very nice resorts, each with it’s own lagoon.

These we could swim in, but not the hotel pools, they were for guests only. This is the one I would sneak into.

Later that first night Sean and I went out for a meal, found a bar with a view, watched the canoes go by with a cold beer.

Later that night the rain started, it was a downpour like I had never seen before, the barman gave us a poncho each for the walk back to Kapowai, these didn’t make a bit of difference, I found out why the following morning when I found them in my pocket still in their wrapper. Half way back to the boat I remember taking off my Jandals (flip flops) because they were too slippery, as soon as I got them off I ended up on my ar$e, yeah my bare feet were no match for this rain.

This was the scene the following day, just as well as we didn’t feel much like venturing out.

Arriving Hawaii   Leave a comment

After 11 days at sea we finally arrived in Hawaii, it was a pleasant trip, I was a bit sea sick for a couple of days out of San Diego but soon got my sea legs.

There was not a lot to see on the way, very little wild life, one ship and a large steel pipe floating vertically out of the water, unfortunately I was off shift and didn’t get a photo.

Honolulu in the distance, looks a bit stormy, still a nice sight after days at sea.

We sailed past Honolulu, past one airport, past another airport until we found our marina, it was a very nice marina but a long way from anywhere.

Kapowai at berth.

A long walk to dry land, but after only having 60 odd feet to walk around in this was very nice.

The walk was worth it.

There isn’t a lot to see out here, but most evenings just as the sun was setting we would be treated to a few visitors, here’s one of them, great to watch but hard to photograph.

Amsterdam   18 comments

Made it to Amsterdam at last, just in time for the sunset, as you can see I’m staying in one of the better hotels with a stunning views. Now most of you will think I’m joking, but no, this is me, I love this sort of view, industry, things happening,toxic fumes. Ok maybe not the toxic fumes, in fact that’s only steam.
On holiday give me the beautiful sunset but when I’m in work mode, I’ll go for this everyday.
