Baie D' Hakahau, Ua Pou our favorite 'Town' anchorage in the Marquesas

We've been hanging out in Baie D' Hakahau on the island of  Ua Pou the last five days and having a great time.  The locals are super friendly, the bay nicely protected, if you can anchor behind the breakwater and not so many sharks that you can't swim.   The weather is dry in comparison to Nuka Hiva and to top it off we've only seen a few other boats here so we practically have the place to ourselves.   The community is very active lots of socializing and sports and swimming making it easy to meet lots of locals.   More on this soon.
