Final Day on Pitcairn

Sunday, 20 Oct 2019 | Views [301]

All good things must come to an end. And they did so today as I boarded the MV Silver Supporter for my return to Mangareva. Up early I was like usual, I just had to see Mrs. T one final time. The last of my bananas went to her as she was in her usual ... Read more >

Down Rope

Saturday, 19 Oct 2019 | Views [612]

Wow! Have I done a lot on Pitcairn or what? Today I’d visit a place that’d be the feather in my cap during my time here. Down Rope is recommended only with a guide as someone was seriously injured several years ago and had to be evacuated ... Read more >

Christian's Cave

Wednesday, 16 Oct 2019 | Views [442]

I’ve done nearly all of the major walks here on Pitcairn. Highest Point I’ve visited twice, and Tedside, Down Isaac’s, and St. Paul’s Pool once each. The weather was supposed to turn foul today but I wanted to get up to Christian’... Read more >

St. Paul's Pool

Tuesday, 15 Oct 2019 | Views [537]

The weather has come right again here on Pitcairn. Whilst I’ve seen a fair amount on the western half of the island, it was now time to explore some of the eastern half of the home of the Bounty mutineers. St. Paul’s Pool was on my radar ... Read more >

Rainy Sunday

Sunday, 13 Oct 2019 | Views [356]

In much of the rest of the South Pacific, you have to search hard to find something open on Sunday, if anything is open at all. Here on Pitcairn, however, Sunday is one of the busiest days on the island. The post office, treasury, souvenir shop, museum, ... Read more >

All Around Goes Juliett

Saturday, 12 Oct 2019 | Views [308]

Juliett has soared above New Zealand, Australia, the Maldives, Wallis & Futuna, Ireland, Bali, and the Falkland Islands, among many other places. She’s been my trusty drone on every continent except Africa (although I didn’t fly her in ... Read more >

Mrs. T

Friday, 11 Oct 2019 | Views [861]

Finally I woke up refreshed after a good sleep, for the first time in about five days. Everyone else on the ship is only staying on Pitcairn for four days but I have the gift of time with 11 days. That meant I didn’t want to do too much in one ... Read more >

Pitcairn, at Long Last!

Thursday, 10 Oct 2019 | Views [484]

At 3 AM I arose. Randy was already awake, chatting with some of the ship’s crew. As I gazed across the horizon I could make out a faint silhouette of Pitcairn. Finally I’ve sighted it, and finally soon, I’d be able to foot on it. When ... Read more >

At Sea

Wednesday, 9 Oct 2019 | Views [251]

For an entire day I’m on the MV Silver Supporter. My seasickness tablets have worked well; too well in fact because I didn’t sleep all that well last night. Breakfast was more or less what I expected: sausages, baked beans, and croissants.... Read more >
