April 12, 2014 Hapatoni, Tahuata

Anchored up in Hapatoni Bay, Tahuata Island. Befriended by locals here and receiving incredible Polynesian hospitality! Boat loaded with more fruit than we can eat in a month, evening drives up the mountain to feed the goats, barefoot jungle explorations to ancient ruins, many new Marquesian friends teaching us how to live off the land. Mountain hiking, eating goat, Kari fighting off marriage proposals. Swimming with manta rays in the bay, snorkeling, music, getting proficient with French conversation and learning Marquesian language too! Incredible new friends with open hearts. Going full native.
