Happy Arrival In Nuku Hiva

We dropped our anchor in Taioha'e Bay, Nuku Hiva on 4/11 at 21:11 (9:11 p.m.) under a nearly full moon. After sorting things out, opening hatches, and getting SHINDIG and ourselves comfy Captain Rob pulled out "the good stuff" and we celebrated our successful journey and safe arrival in a most appropriate manner.

We celebrate our arrival with shots of cognac and Don Julio Tequila, whee!! The MX courtesy flag will be put away (photo courtesy of s/v SHINDIG)

SHINDIG is getting used to her new location. We think she looks rather spiffy with a lush, green background.

Shindig's background will no longer be the dry hills of Baja. From now on it's lush greenery. Sylvia, Rob and JD, SHINDIG in the background (photo courtesy of s/v SHINDIG)

We've spent the past few days checking in and attending to other necessary details.

We unloaded a pallet full of Cinnabar's gear and shipped it to Raiatea where we'll meet it at the end of the month. It is now Easter weekend and everything in town is closed until Tuesday so we've decided to head to the nearby Daniel's Bay anchorage for a taste of secluded South Seas paradise.
