Leaving Our Mark
There were three places in the Cook Islands where we left a trail: Suwarrow at the ranger station and in Penrhyn in the cruiser logbooks that are now at both villages (Omoka and Te Tautua). We were the very first entry into the Te Tautua logbook and we were quite honored.
I love the idea of these cruiser traditions. You might remember the map we left on Wallace Island, BC or our plank at Hot Springs Cove, BC. If you visit these places in the future and see our mark, please take a picture and send it to us.
At Suwarrow I made a palm frond wreath, the type that can be made for a headdress or a necklace and put our card in the center.
Here is our entry in the Omoka logbook next to a card from SV Freya. When we went to return the book a card dropped out and it was friends of ours in Victoria BC. We re-took our picture of our log entry with their card.
And our entry on the first page of the brand new Te Tautua logbook in which I misspelled Penrhyn *sigh* twice:
Where next? Who knows.
