Land Ho!

One of the best sunrises ever this morning because it illuminated the green mountains and ravines of Fatu Hiva! Brian got to see it first and when I woke up, there it was in front of us,large and cloud capped. After 24 days of flat horizons only varied by the shapes of swells, this is a glorious sight.

I've already run my homemade French flag up the flag halyard. Maybe since it's high enough up, nobody will notice that the red panel is a bit bigger than the white and blue ones.

There's not much more to say except I'm really excited and this evening we're looking forward to being snugly ensconced in the Bay of Virgins (aka Hanavave) on the west side of the island. A full night of sleep sounds pretty good, too.
