Fatu Hiva... Rugged, Beautiful, Remote, Breathtaking.
We had a great two weeks in Fatu Hiva and for me to do it justice, I would have to sit here writing until my eyelids drooped and my bum grew numb so I'll just sum up with the highlights.
Playing Marbles with Evelyn
Kelita and Robert
A hike to a waterfall with Robert and Kelita from Freedom where we spent the day jumping off the rocks into the pool below where the shrimps nibbled at our feet and the eels squirmed in the shallows.
Letting cute Maya from Archibald get creative with my hair
Going to Omoa to do a trade for a Ukulele; we traded a small children's guitar, an old wet suit and a bottle of rum for a hand made Uke.
Today we are back in Hiva Oa, preparing to leave for the Tuamotous around lunch-time which gives us enough time to stock up on baguettes and change the fuel filter. It is bitter sweet leaving the Marquesas. While we have thoroughly enjoyed our stay, we are sure there are more wonderful adventures to come... I'm going to miss Pamplemousse!!!!
