Day 375, Year 1: Taking the Day Off
Date: Saturday, October 28, 2006
Weather: Beautiful Weather Returns to Tonga
Location: Nuku’alofa, Tongatapu Group, Tonga
Today was Saturday here and after listening to the net and finding that Wind Pony, Procyon, and Quantum Leap are safely half way to New Zealand, Mark and I walked to town. I wanted to get some fresh veggies at the market and Mark wanted to see if he could find a new printer to replace the one that we have had that just stopped working. We actually found a Hewlett-Packard just one model down from the one we have, so we bought it. Town is about two miles from where we are docked, so the walk home took a while. We walked by the green where a local group is protesting the current way of governing, wandered down the main street along the water, visited a couple of wood carving galleries, and got back to the boat in early afternoon.
>From that time on, Mark worked on installing the new printer on all of our computers and I took the afternoon off and worked on some projects that have been on the back burner for some time now. Tomorrow I will go back and describe our tour of the island yesterday in more detail. We actually took time to watch another DVD tonight and are ready to turn in.
