On the 12th, we went on shore to hand out the grab bags. The grab bags were filled with women's clothes, men's clothes, underwear, as well as bras, shoes and flip flops, and some toiletries. I think we filled a total of 19 bags when all was said and done. When we went ashore, we saw lots of different activities going on.
|Actually before we went ashore, we were given a huge box of donuts. They were freshly made and still warm. Yum!|
|This is Rosetina. She is making biryuu (spelling?), basically it is breadfruit that has been cooked, mashed, and is now being fermented in a pit lined with leaves over a period of days.|
|This is Kalani's stepfather. He's always working, making copra.|
|Kalani and I with her grab bag.|
|Paul with Ikaika and Sullivan. Ikaika is in her new outfit, donated by a couple students on Kwajalein.|
|Me with Ikaika, Malina, and Kuba. Malina and Ikaika have their new clothes on.|
|Look at that water! Paul's transporting all the bags via boat. Then he'd come in and TC and I would take a bag into shore.|
|This was a funny sight. No one we talked to surfed, though.|
|I love this photo (taken by TC). She was making donuts for an evening at church.|
|The canoe builders. There seemed to be so many more canoes on this trip.|
|Same sunset, different location.|
|TC turning a local outdoor church into a gym.|
|Who needs dumbbells when you have a 5 year old girl?|
|Who needs a medicine ball when you have a 3 year old boy?|
Geoff, Timo, and Elli arrived on the 12th. The next day we took off for Namu Pass, hoping to find waves.
|Timo bringing in his first fish on Cherokee.|
|It was an uku (we think), and we already had enough fish, so we set him free.|
|Outside of Namu Pass, they caught a baby yellowfin! Yum! We decided to keep him.|
The next photos up will be surf pics!
