Monday was a quiet day at sea. Not too ambitious !!

Tuesday we visited Nuku Hiva in the Marquises Islands. Another very beautiful place. Not much activity here as there are only 2600 people on the whole island. We took a 4X4 trip across the mountain to the other side for some great scenery and of course the mandatory stop for “tourist shopping “ at a small village.

This evening we had a group of locals come on board for an hour or so of Polynesian dancing and music in the Show Lounge on the ship. Very good show.

News today that our planned stop in Hiva Oa, Marquises that was planned for tomorrow will not be possible due to high swells on the ocean and possible difficulty with the tenders to get ashore. Instead we will be at sea tomorrow again and will stop in Fakarava on Thursday for the day. ( not a big issue as we had another day at sea scheduled anyway ) Fakarava is an atoll and should be great snorkeling and diving.
