Greetings from Hia Oa,
The island is so lush, green, hot, humid and rainy!! Boy, does it rain!! Got caught in several rainstorms while at anchor and also ashore. Although we have been here since Wednesday, we have been doing jobs and only today -Sat - have we managed to tour about. So the upshot is that we are still tired but SO happy to be across the big, empty part of the Pacific. And now we have photos to share, will post some tomorrow when I have sorted them for the blog.
We are well and the boat is re-fuelled, from a big delivery ship!! Now we still need some food  and then we will head off on Monday to Fatu Hiva.
Oyster Moon (Paul and Rhu) are also here, having arrived one day after us. and Camelot is due in tomorrow but Marita 3 is heading for Nuka Hiva as they need fuel.
Look for the photos,
Signing off for today, Karacool.
