|Puddle Jumpers celebrating!|
|Anchored in Nuku Hiva|
Some folks had an easy ride; some folks struggled.
So far, the longest trip declared was 35 days. I am so glad that wasn't us!
|Hoisting our French flags - Land Ho!|
This has been an excellent place to recover, work on projects, and provision.
It is a lovely town and very easy to walk around.
|Getting closer (and warmer!)|
Our only complaint, the fresh veggie market starts at 4AM on Saturdays; 6AM on Wednesdays.
|Saving the evil spinnaker!|
But, if you do get up early, you can get a fresh chocolate croissant and fresh baguettes (which are delivered in crates everyday). Okay, not so bad!
|Flying the evil spinnaker|
We have checked out the 2 restaurants, 2 grocery stores, and the hardware store, plus have been doing some sightseeing.
|Heading into a squall|
Doug needs to go up the mast and re-run the spinnaker halyard and check the jib masthead and furler.
We will wait for a calm day before doing this project!
|Fresh Yellowfin Tuna - yum|
We hope to have everything ship-shape by the middle of next week.
We want to visit a couple of other bays on Nuku Hiva and then sail to the Tuamotos.
There are several other islands in the Marquesas that we want to see, but we will see them when we start sailing North to Hawaii later this year.
|Doug and Brian bundled and tethered|
Thanks for all of your support and wonderful comments along the way.
We just got to read them and loved them all.
|Leaving Cabo San Lucas|
Come and see us sometime!
