The deafening crash followed within a split second after Merel had opened
the cupboard. Out flew the Pyrex dish, taking a nose dive onto the freezer
top. Shards all over the worktop, so the Pyrex dish ended up with a new
career of turning itself into sea glass. How could this happen? Well - the
are back and so is the rollyness.

Broken glass is often a sign of good luck. May be that is why later in the
day we were visited by another school of jumpy dolphins. It could not have
been the same school as last time. Today's ones seemed to perform better -
often they were swimming and undulating synchronised, sometimes with 4
dolphins side by side. Nice show!

We should not have to put up with the rollyness much longer. This should be
our last night at sea. Tomorrow we hope to make landfall before dark at Hiva
Oa to enjoy our first full night's sleep. As long as the wind does not
decide to go slack on us now...

And guess who's shining in near full glory, now that we are almost there?
The moon. At last, some light at night. Still not enough to read by, but
quite a difference to the dark nights we had during our first week and a bit
out here.

Ciao for now,
Geoff & Merel
