Today is the 227th anniversary of the mutiny on The Bounty (the actual mutiny on the actual ship, not the book/movie). This happened in Tahiti, where we were soaking up sun just four months ago.




If The Bounty's story sounds vaguely familiar, but you can't quite remember the details, National Geographic has a cool piece on breadfruit and its role in The Bounty's tale in honor of the anniversary.

Our last morning on First Wave we just needed to eat breakfast and pack up. We were having a fruit and yogurt breakfast when some locals came to say goodbye.



Ray and Renee came to say goodbye too.



As one last stop, we drove up to the castle of the Out Island Doctor. It had been mint green the last time Nana saw it, but now it was yellow with white trim. Ray told us the Doctor's daughter lived there now. It was impossible to get to the front of the building, but Kyle ran up the driveway and snapped a picture of the side.



Then finally... three long flights home, with some very tired adults and kiddos by the end.

 

Thank you, Nana, for inviting us to celebrate your birthday with you. You throw the best parties!
