Journal Entry:
We spent the morning just lounging around - the hotel was very comfortable - hot water, great views, and very comfortable. In the afternoon Stacy, Corinne and I drove in to town. Corinne wanted to buy a carved turtle before leaving Micronesia, so we drove out to Kapingamarangi - a village well known for its wood carvers. She found what she wanted at the first place we stopped and the guy was fairly reasonable so we didn't even go to any of the other stores. I was interested in coming back in a few days because he had some unfinished turtles that he was going to turn into cribbage boards - might be cool. From the carvers we hit the grocery stores to see what they had in stock this week. It was probably a bad sign that almost all we bought was booze (margarita ingredients, wine, and port) we also managed to get ice-cream then we took Corinne to the airport. As we were leaving the airport it started to rain hard so Stacy and I decide to go to a movie. We went back to the hotel to drop of our purchases and the sun comes out so we decide to go hike to some waterfalls instead of the movie. Then we got to the room and decide to have a margarita, next thing we know Mia and Miriquo (from PATS) had shown up and two thirds of a bottle of Tequila (plus triple sec and half a bottle of wine) later we stagger up to the restaurant for diner. Then Stacy and I went back to finish off the bottle of wine and crashed hard.
