|'To our tormentors'|

We have a ton of great shots of Mark being mauled by the very tame stingrays in Moorea. He was remarkably unphased by having stingrays all over him (there's a great shot of one on his face on our Facebook page). Conrad, on the other hand, was having none of it.

|Beach barbecue with Steven on (Tahuata)|
I could use the lack of internet as an excuse for not updating the blog but the truth is that there is internet for a fee in many places. In the two and a half weeks since our Pacific crossing, I have felt very unmotivated to post anything. We have been spending our days enjoying the towering volcanic spires, struggling with French, and savoring the flavorful fruit that bursts from every other tree. We also met some new kid boats (Miss Behaving and Seabbatical, who hung out with Amelie in the Galapagos) that Mark and Conrad (and we) have enjoyed hanging with.

This excerpt from Conrad's schoolwork sums up our trip pretty well:
Write three sentences about what you did last weekend. Then underline all the past-tense verbs.
We sailed and sailed some more. We got really bored. We kept sailing.
Look around the room. Write three sentences about everything that's happening now. Underline all the present-tense verbs.
We are sailing. We are bored. We are doing school.
