Virginia and Dennis Johns
Two days ago we moved to Fatu Hiva. No internet here so still posting positions and short blogs via radio.
Beautiful island with rock spires around the anchorage that are absolutely gorgeous. Explored this small village yesterday and tried hiking to a waterfall but never found it. Today we hired a local to take us in his fishing boat over to the next village and that was a great trip. We went with Phyllis and Don from Solstice. We saw tapas being made and bought a couple for souvenirs. Found out that our boat captain that gave us the ride was a sculptor by trade so went to his home and bought some wood carvings; Phyllis and Don bought a tiki; we bought a wooden bowl.
got to check the weather now, but if it is good we will head at first light back to the north west to Tahuata island.
all is well.
