Pictures from Taiohae, Nuku Hiva

A few pictures from our stay at Taiohae Bay. More description can be found in earlier blog posts.

These wasps visited us often on the boat. They were quite pleasant compared to wasps we had visit us in Mexico and rarely stayed for more than a few minutes.

No-see-um bites - Rani suffered strong reactions to these and suffered for weeks.

Carvings at a waterfront sculpture park.

Polynesian voyaging canoe model in a local museum run by an ex-cruiser.

Church gate

Freshly caught tuna is sold each day in the afternoon at the pier - cost about $5 a kilo.

An odd location for a phone booth. It appeared to be functional!

This cross was supposedly grafted onto an earlier sculpture of an explicit phallic nature. Note the large number of yachts that are anchored in the bay.
