This iReport is part of an assignment:
Travel photo of the day
This multi million dollar tuna boat cruises the islands for chicks and parties. The four boys who man her catch tuna when they can for hundreds of thousands of dollars and in off season they surf, drink and make merry with unlimited cash.
And this is real. They know no limits in the South Pacific.
The second photo is of my Samoan Girl, I call her Fuji, a slur on the word Fiji, because I have always loved Fuji film and Fuji comes to my lips more easily than FIJI.
She's just a natural on a boat deck and one hell of a cook. But also my wife. She's held my back in many a lava flow, typhoon and tight landing in remote deserts.
And once, it was a high powered rifle and her that stopped me from a great beating at the hands of 30 young gangsters out to wipe me off the face of this earth. Four of them died that night at 4 a.m.
And this: this is all true once more.
