Pictures from the passage

We interrupt the somewhat time-shifted updates from Totem's passage across the Pacific to bring you... pictures! A few of our favorites are below. To see more, visit our Flickr stream: you can always get to it at http://www.flickr.com/photos/giffordclan by clicking through images down the right hand side, or through most of the photos in the blog. (THANKS TIM!)

You can get to the stream by clicking through any one of these as well. Sizes are smaller to help us upload on this dribbly bit of bandwidth that's available.

The girls open gifts from their grandparents on the 10th day offshore

Goodies!

I always knew he wanted a square rigger! Jamie and Ty show off the ratlines they built for checking our our backstay connections for the radio (more fruitless troubleshooting)

Pesky little fishing net that ALMOST gave us a very, very bad day

Clouds at the equator: I could watch them for hours. I *did* watch them for hours.

  1. Such an amazing accomplishment. After looking at the pictures I feel like I am just butting my head against a brick wall trying to get all of our "ducks in a row" so to speak!
    You guys are amazing!
    Just sorry we were never able to make radio contact on the crossing.
