After two fabulous nights on Easter Island it was time to begin the sea portion of our voyage through Polynesia. We boarded our new home last night, and set off to the northwest towards the Pitcairn group. Our journey to our first island, Ducie, will take two full days at sea.
A fiery sunrise started our day. After a breakfast on the outer deck, it was time to wrap up our times spent on Easter Island and move on to the plans ahead. We learned about photography, navigation, and Polynesian culture. A few seabirds passed by and flying fish darted off in front of the vessel. But mostly, today was about getting used to the ship, and enjoying the beautiful conditions. Whether out on deck or merely staring out the window, the cobalt blue ocean was mesmerizing.
