So far the highlight of our stay in Palau was when the girls came to visit for Christmas. Their flight was cancelled once they reached Honolulu so their stay with us was cut by a couple of days, however, the airline put them up in the Marriott, on the beach in Waikiki, in a corner room with a view. Tough deal.
We cruised around the islands a bit, celebrated Christmas aboard with a turkey dinner, and New Years with Jim and Katie of Asylum out in the islands. Jim took Erin diving and gave Kelly her first try-dive which didn't venture too far from the anchor chain. Otherwise it was just a great family time and some easy days on and in the water. And over with all too quickly.
