Hiva Oa

First picture shows Hiva Oa from 10 nautical miles away, the first sight of land in a month! As you can se I’m pretty excited. You can really appreciate that it’s a volcanic island seeing these high cloud embedded mountains. Atuona to the left and the airport to the right, there are daily flights between the islands. A lot of rain but this day clear skies and a beautiful view of the local bay and mountain. A picture of Maiken in the more secluded Hana Menu bay and the only real house left in Hana Menu bay. Deserted as far as we can tell. It rained a lot and after a couple of hours you can se the sediment rich water coming into the bay from the local hillside river.
