We are not in Hawaii yet as we had expected to be. With some error in the paperwork shuffle that allows a ship to dock in the USA, we were denied access. After some grovelling and cajoling we were finally allowed to dock, but Only if we dock on Saturday until midnight. We have a coast guard drill at 2:30 pm, and might not be able to go ashore until the evening. Fine with me!
As we sailed into the sunset today I couldn’t help but think it’s starting to look a little like Hawaii, don’t you think? I also saw my first bird in days. I guess it does really mean we’re nearing land.
