on the lam in the Marquesas

11 May 2010 | Taiohae, Nuku Hiva, FP
Internet is limited, so updates few and far between! We are now in Taiohae doing a final provisioning before heading to the Tuamotus - about 500 miles or so to the SW. The past week we spent in Baie D'Anaho on the north side of Nuku Hiva - a beautiful bay, sheltered from the swells, but not the wind. Of the 9 boats, all but one was a kids boat, and the hold-outs were friends that were known to most of the residents as the did the Puddle Jump from PV with us. Snorkelling was great, good beach (which saw 2 kids b-day celebrations and a open fire BBQ, and the highlight being swimming with the Manta Rays, who were feeding on the krill. Really great experience to dive down amongst creatures bigger than your dinghy!. We all went to 2 restaurants, one of which was in the adjoining bay, so we were ferried there on Oso Blanco, a 64ft Nordhavn, and the boys dig a circumnavigation of the island in pursuit of fish (we caught one yellowfin tuna and a large needlefish). Eric, Annie and son "Bear" on Oso have been exceedingly generous with their hospitality etc - in the Pacific North West you'd be inclined to cringe if a 60 ft powerboat showed up, but not with these folks!! It is sad to be leaving the Marquesas - the people here are very friendly and welcoming, and the fresh fruit to die for. Cheers, Team Mulan.
