Pleasant Anaho

After a few days here in Anaho we can only agree with all the positive opinions we heard about this bay before coming here. It’s the most pleasant anchorage of Nuku Hiva: the water’s clearer than in the south (even though it’s still a bit murky), the sea’s calm in here, the beaches are almost mosquito-free and there’s a few lovely walks you can do from here. Yesterday we hiked over the low ridge to the bay east of here and to our surprise found a farm there. No village, no road, no boat access–they take their produce on horseback via Anaho bay (about 30 min. walking) over the mountain to the next village Hatiheu (the neighbouring bay to the west, another hour of walking) and from there by pick-up to the market in Taiohae. Quite some effort… Tomorrow we’ll return there to get some fresh provisioning (tomatoes, aubergines, green peppers, bananas, etc.). This morning we walked into the other direction to the village of Hatiheu. The way is steep and narrow and we got phantastic views over the island. Hatiheu’s a pretty village with a lovely seaside walk and a mini-minimarket where we found (much to our suprise) baguettes. We couldn’t resist the baguettes, bought some flour too, picked some mangoes and papayas on the way and dragged the heavy backpack over the ridge back to Pitufa :-)
