Hi Everyone! I am really sorry for the interruption in blog content. The internet will not allow me to load the website at all (even at 3 a.m.), and the sail mail stations have been down as well so it has even been difficult to post by SSB Radio. One odd thing about all this is even when no other websites will work, Facebook is there and ready to go. It's a mystery.

We are currently in Niue, and it is one of the most beautiful places we have been yet. Just wait until you see the pictures. We are planning to leave here in the next few days and head to the Kingdom of Tonga. Maybe we will have better internet there?

Now, we are off to go SCUBA diving.
