Tahuata is a very beautiful island in the Marquesas. In fact it is the only island we visited that actually had that clear blue water we hoped to see. We stayed a few nights here on our way from Hiva Oa to Fatu Hiva and then did it again on our way back north. Here’s some of the photos from both trips.

We came in to the most beautiful rainbow. It’s the first time I’ve ever seen the ends. They literally dipped into the water and you could see them ten feet below the surface!

The main anchorage where everyone goes. We chose the one next door and were the only ones there!

Captain Dan brings in one of his first fish here in the island. It’s a needle fish but this one has red lips and white teeth.
The colors and textures of the island are amazing!
Momma said never to air my dirty laundry so here’s some clean laundry for you!
Yep, we have to work sometimes. This day I did laundry while Dan fixed a leak on deck.
That’s my man! He can fix anything!
Workday fun! Note my trailside wringer. That makes laundry drying take half the time!

This lonely little kitty was just enjoying the view, the breezes and some shade.
Kind of reminded me of something from Gilligan’s Island.
