25 April 2015 | Hana Moe Noa, Tahuatu, Marquesas, French Polynesia
Have we found Paradise? Well, this is as close as we have come so far. We are anchored of a small Marquesan Island called Tahuatu. There is one house on the bay, 10 boats in the very well protected and calm bay, water so clear we can see the bottom 30 feet below us, no loud music and did I say it's CALM?? Yes, I did. For the first time since May 29th, I am on the boat and not holding on to something to make sure that I don't fall. The bay at Atuano, Hiva Oa was what I call a non-anchorage as all the boats were rolling in the swell like you wouldn't believe. Of course, there is no internet (posting this by satellite), there are no tours, no grocery stores or restaurants here either.
Whats the first thing we both did upon arrival? Take a nap!
