April 17, 2014 Hiva Oa

Great sail from Hanamoenoa, to Tahuata to Hanamenu, Hiva Oa today across the Bordelais channel. On the desert side of the island–anchored up and swam in a large pool made centuries ago. Land looks like a blend of Eastern Oregon and Saudi Arabia. Hiked further inland and discovered massive ruins from the ancient civilization here. Learned to identify good coconuts and husk them in the jungle. Shark fins sighted and massive rays leaping out of the water in the bay!
