I went right on to snow and ice in NYC from our vacation and didn’t get back to PNG and into the water until February.
The surf has finally died down a bit so it is only a little bit dangerous to kayak out from our house now, but I make sure to always wear my helmet.
I wasn’t paying attention when this boat pulled out so I missed it, but I tried to hitch a free ride. They were trailing a skiff and then a rope from the skiff. This is an old Indonesian ferry boat that a local guy has bought. It is pretty narrow and has huge outriggers made of trees hanging off either side. This is a very lousy video of it.
Truth: If you look for something you can usually find it.
