Dreams Do Come True Part I

I had a really big problem with my computer when we arrived in New Zealand - it crashed!!  When we got home I took it to the computer geeks and we were able to retrieve all of the photos and when I say all I mean all 10,000 images that were stored in the hard drive!

Well, to make a long story short(er), I was able to restore some of the photos to their high quality but many I was not... so the result is what you will see in our slideshow of images of our trip.  Bill and I have  high quality images in our minds but we did want to share some of what we experienced with you.

This is the slideshow of the first leg of Cathy and Bill Norrie's South Pacific voyage on their Pacific Seacraft Crealock 37 yacht "Terrwyn".  This segment takes them through their preparations in Canoe Cove, B.C. and Port Townsend, Washington and finally they set sail from Bamfield, B.C. After 40 days at sea they arrive in the French Polynesian islands of Marquesas.  Some of it you have seen in the videos we posted earlier but many are new.

Please forgive the fuzziness ...


  1. Wow, I'm so glad you got your photos back. I know that losing something like that could just be heart rending.

    I had to laugh when I saw the photo of the rooster and two frames later a photo of a plucked bird!

  2. Thanks for making me cry :)

  3. What a great slide show! Smiles from ear to ear on all your shots. You two are not enjoying yourselves one bit are you? You are both amazing! Loved the music you picked.

  4. Love the whole thing! I'm sitting here in my flannel pj's trying to stay warm. The photos do tell a wonderful story and that's just a beauty of a boat.

  5. Thank you so much Melissa! It is wonderful to re-live the warmth while huddled in front of the fire with snow and -17 C temps outside. Brrrr...

    Now I am trying to upload "Dreams Do Come True Part II"- patience, Cathy, patience!
