Marquesas’ Farewell – Jan 12 2014

It was finally time to say good-bye, bid farewell and sail away.  This is the hardest part of our journey…the goodbyes. 
It is an understatement to say that what has made this adventure over the past decade so amazing are the friends we have met and made for life.  We have seen unbelievable scenery, visited places far off the beaten path and had the undeniable pleasure of spending time in some of the most isolated and beautiful places on the planet…but what really stands out in our minds, are the people. 
The gracious hospitably, warm open hearts, friendly spirits that have welcomed us as our stars spun into their galaxy.  We consider each new friend a gift and we cherish and hold dear. However, thru ought this past 10 years, there have been a handful extraordinary in their goodness to us. 
Kevin and Annabella are two of those very rare and unique individuals who brought us into their lives, their homes and hearts and made us family.  We will never forget their kindness.  We grew to appreciate and love them.
On our last evening together, according to custom, they gave each of us a Black pearl necklace, a reminder of our time spent and open invitation to return to their home, their heart and their Island.

With very mixed feelings we said our final farewell, not goodbyes, but knowing in our hearts, that as it is for so many we have met along the journey, it may be in the next world when we meet again.
Dear Friends Kevin & Annabella & Marquesan Ceremonial Drums
