Location: Nuku Hiva, Marquesas

This morning started out with a 6am provisioning trip to the local market for four of the crew, and after a delicious breakfast of blueberry and pumpkin pancakes made by Tory and Julia everyone had a free day to explore the island. A few intrepid groups made their way to a waterfall and hiked to the other side of the bay, seeing a museum of ancient art, an old church, and a lot of animals along the way. Others took the time to relax and catch up on school work and errands on shore. Everybody got together in the afternoon to help prepare the boat for passage tomorrow to the island of Fatu Hiva. After dinner and a hammerhead shark sighting during cleanup, everyone dressed up to head to shore for a night out at a local Polynesian dance celebration. andlt;br /andgt;andlt;br /andgt;andlt;hr width=’100’/andgt;andlt;div align=’center’andgt;andlt;tableandgt;andlt;trandgt;andlt;tdandgt;andlt;
