Marquesas - Nuku Hiva - Hakatea Bay

A spectacular anchorage entered through rough seas, in between rocks.
We walked to the Vaipo water fall, one of the highest in the world at 350m.
Unfortunately the flow was only slight, but as this is the path to it, that's probably just as well.
Caroline was happy as there was a species of fish/eel we have never seen before in the pool.
On the way back we were offered bananas to buy, and served with free homemade cold lemonade at the banana sellers house.
All the gardens in the tiny village are surrounded by colourful shrubs and magnificent flowers.
