Booby’s first stop after much circling, on our spreader at sunset. Fiji > Vanuatu passage.
Seriously shredded Fiji courtesy flag,
removed for our Vanuatu arrival.
PredictWind.com forecast into Vanuatu.
Balancing on our dinghy wasn’t always
easy. Fiji > Vanuatu passage.
Still, after a little adjusting, the booby decided our dinghy wasn’t a bad place to hang. Fiji > Vanuatu passage.
Maybe the booby stopped to groom properly. When not sleeping
or scoping the action, that’s what he did en route to Vanuatu.
“Whatcha lookin’ at?!?” the red-footed booby seemed to ask
as it gazed at me with apparent irritation.
|“What’s that? A bird in the sky?” – hitch-hiking|
red footed booby en route to Vanuatu.
|“Hey! That’s one of my peeps!” Observed the red-footed booby, its head cocked.|
Getting wings ready to fly? Not yet. We didn’t actually see when the booby finally did take off….
This last-minute hitch-hiker, a flying fish, the “deer-in-the-headlights
of the sea” was down for the count. We found him after we anchored in Vanuatu.
