Having been at sea for seven days, Nuku Hiva came into view at dawn this morning, hovering on the horizon, its vertical 4,500 foot cliffs jutting out from the ocean. As the sun rose, color and depth were added to the slopes and a prominent feature caught my eye– almost as a warning– because it looked like the bust of an ancient God meant to turn away those who venture upon its shores
This volcanic island shows no coastal roads or foot trails, and for the exception of a spill of sand here and there, no accessible beaches, by road.
But those brave enough to enter Taiohae Bay, Nuku Hiva reveals its hidden beauty.
Lovely. I have never been there. Lots of sail boats so there must be some people there. Did look like a sleeping giant. Say hi to Meridith. Toni
We did not get to see the rest of the island, but from where we anchored, it is a rugged ride to other parts. Meredith says, Hi.
gotta admit, I can’t wait to see your shirts everyday. did you shop special for the trip for these prints? Loving the daily blog – your photos are terrific!
Thanks Susan. Meredith bought/brought about 40 light dresses (easy on, easy off) and I have about 12 shirts. I did not bring any tee shirts because it is my goal to buy one in every port.
