Captain's Blog 05/02/2015 - Hiva Oa to Nuka Hiva
We have been resting in the harbor at Atuona on the island of Hiva Oa. It is a very small harbor and is crowded with other sailboats behind the breakwater. We are anchored outside and it is a little bumpy with the swell. We did laundry and rented a small car to tour the island. It is stunningly beautiful and very rugged island. We drove along the ridge at the top to a small hamlet called Paumau where there is very old ruins with tiki statues and ceremonial platforms. We plan to depart here in the morning and sail to Fatu Hiva before moving on to the larger island of Nuka Hiva. All is well. We will share more photos on our Facebook page as the week progresses.
Thanks for staying with us!
