Hey Darryl,

I'm checking your blog on a daily basis for updates -- now I know why they've been few and far between.  I kinda expected 'net access wouldn't be the best, now you're confirming it.  And I wouldn't be surprised about all blogs being blocked because of martial law.

That said... you have other, much better things to keep you occupied.  Raise a beer for me the next time you're in one of those palm-frond watering holes; I intend to raise one for and to YOU in about an hour!

Be safe!

Hey Buck;
We are about to get underway from Savu Savu, heading to the main Fiji island and the port of Nadi.

For some weird reason, I have no access to any blogs, you, me or anyone. Not sure if this is a Fiji thing or not. Sort of like the Chinese bit of possible censorship. 

Either way, internet is shaky with the access here and it is frustrating to say the least. 

Hope everything is going well, it is certainly different living the cruising lifestyle once again. 

Have a fine rest of the week!


I said updates were few and far between, but there ARE a few.  Go visit and see what it's like to live the dream!


  1. Sailing in the wild blue ocean - sounds like a dream come true.

  2. Darryl has written about his passage across the Atlantic... from London to Florida, via Portugal and Spain... and it's GOOD stuff. I'd recommend people who have the time do a deep dive on his blog. There's GREAT stuff there.


Just be polite... that's all I ask.
