We reached Niue on the 26th of May.
We anchored outside the village of Alofi, the capital of Niue.
As we came in after 15h30, the immigration had closed for the day so we had no right to go on land. We spent the rest of the day cleaning up the boat while Alex and Inez played “Star Wars” with plus plus.
The day after was a fascinating experience. The waves being too big and smashing too hard against the pier, there is no dinghy dock in Alofi. However they have a system of lifting up the dinghy with a crane and “parking” it on a parking lot!
Once the dinghy was on the pier, we dragged it on a cart to its parking lot
Alex and Inez found this fascinating.
The immigration office was at the airport so Jörgen and Andy from "Into The Blue" got a ride with the immigration officer to the airport while Gina, Laura, Katrhine, Dearb on Into The Blue and Alex, Inez and Louise waited for the papers to be signed. We admired the beautiful view over the bay of Alofi.
Once Jörgen came back we took a walk through the town of Alofi, which was a quite quick walk and made our way to the Nuie Yacht Club being “The Biggest Little Yacht Club in the world”.
By this time now it was lunch… which we had with a fabulous view of Take Off in the bay.
