Roosters crow every morning and evening and wild goats roam the cliffs below the rock spires. The water is clear and the pamplemousse (oversized green grapefruits) are sweet. We've climbed to a waterfall and swum in its icy pool with 2 -inch long crawdads. We've bargained for carvings and fruit and started learning words in Marquesan and French.
We have little time in the Marquesas and so will be leaving this bay tomorrow for the next island to the north. Before that, we will have 5 local kids to the boat this afternoon for chocolate chip cookies. We haven't been able to communicate much but, we get by.
More details to come.
