Chill-out time in Hakatea

After completing formalities and replenishing the cooler with Hinano beer, we sailed 4 miles down the coast and spent 3 nights anchored at Anse Hakatea (Daniel's Bay). Daniel no longer lives there, and the only inhabitants are cows, horses, and chickens belonging to the villagers in neighboring Hakaui. We hiked up a verdant valley to an incredible waterfall, bought mountains of fresh fruit (pamplemousse, bananas, oranges, papayas, mango, and pineapple) from the friendly locals, snorkeled with manta rays, and slowly cleaned the boat in preparation for Vicki's arrival. This morning we motored back to Taiohae.
