After leaving Bigej yesterday afternoon and sailing through the night, we arrived to Katchii around 2 PM. We arrived with a storm. We were two miles from shore and could no longer see the island. Thankfully, it let up before we needed to anchor.
When we arrived, Chien and Walden (the teacher) and Chien's sons came out to see us. They brought us coconuts and we offered them lemonade and coffee and cookies.
We've arranged to go to the school tomorrow at 2:30 PM to hand out some of our gifts from Kwaj. We can't wait. Now I'm off to sort - we know there are approximately 20 kids at this school, so we're going to bring a variety of sizeds of girls' and boys' clothes and hope we can find an outfit for everyone. We can't bring all that we collected because it's at least 30 bags and boxes of donations.
