I am the only healthy one at the moment, probably because I spent the month of December in the throes of what they are experiencing now. Thankfully there is an abundance of citrus available here. Nathaniel and Amelia found an orange tree not far from the property we are staying on and have brought many armloads home.

They were perfectly ripe and sweet. We have since picked passion fruit, papaya and coconuts. Nate whittled a sharp trick from the branch he broke off an ironwood tree in Waipio valley and plans on using it to pry the coconuts open the way he did in the Cook Islands.
