The entrance to Hunga Haven is through a narrow rock finged passage open to the Pacific and not doable in swell .With two pairs of eyes on thw and fls on we made itand tied to a mooring buoy  to save the coral from our anchor . A quiet night and then a stiff climb through bush to the ridge . We joined a larger track where fortuneatly the ex girl guides marked our rturn track .The ridge walk gave us magnificent iews of the islands . Returning I missed the turning and wandered as far as the village before retracing my steps . Penny and Sue being trackers had followed the correct track and waited for me at the dinghy . The main attraction were the multitude of large spiders strung across the track which I being the tallest cleared for the ladies . Back to Nieafu this afternoon
