Arrive Majuro

Anchored in North Field, Majuro


Happy to report that crew and boat are safely tied to a mooring ball in the lagoon of Majuro. Even though it is Sunday, we are planning to clear into Immigration so that we can seek out the biggest, juiciest hamburger and largest, crispiest mound of french fries available. All is well.

In concluding this portion of our voyage, I attach this most excellent passage (provided by Julia) from The Wind In The Willows.

Water Rat says to Mole… “Believe me, young friend, there is nothing half so much
worth doing as simply messing about in boats…In or out of ’em, it doesn’t
matter. Nothing seems really to matter, that’s the charm of it. Whether you
get away, or whether you don’t; whether you arrive at your destination or
whether you reach somewhere else, or whether you never get anywhere at all,
you’re always busy, and you never do anything in particular; and when
you’ve done it there’s always something else to do, and you can do it if
you like, but you’d much better not.”

    I think you folks have a book in you. Perhaps, the next voyage. Any decisions on next move, Aside from burger and fries of course.

    i loved that book as a child. so the burger and fries still reign as the dream meal? glad you’ve arrived safely. are you ready to return to life as we know it?

    I can just imagine you all lingering over the contemplation of your “ideal meal” when you eventually reached a non-moving piece of land. I think I could enjoy cruising the Inland Passage area and those lovely San Juan Islands but this “plowing through big waves” -NO!
    So pleased you arrived safely.

    Three Cheers and a Hip Hip Hooray for Captain and his stellar crew. I agree with Wendy… a few swells on the Inside Passage hanging on to a treadmill are more my speed.
    Soon the McCutcheon’s will be listening to the droning of a furnace and asking “where are my slippers?”.
    John & Kathleen we look forward to more entries in your local journies too.
    Bravo,
    Janet & Terry
