10 Apr Taiohae, Nuku Hiva – Tuesday, 10 April 2001
Don, Rob and Donna all go ashore to look for Tommoe, a friend of Rose Corser, to gather more fruit. I was sick last night, so I stay on board to recover. I am very disappointed; I am reading Typee by Herman Melville and this is the Valley of Taipaivai where the story took place. However, since we are expecting guests tomorrow I decide to take it easy and recuperate. They return two hours later with Tommoe and his brother Greg in tow, with several bags of fruit. We head back to Taiohae since we are not sure what time our guests will arrive tomorrow.
