Supply ship day in the islands

 Aranui 3 arriving in Ua Pou, Marquesas.  This supply ship calling about once a week,  is the lifeline of the islands.  Pretty much everything comes and goes does so on this ship.   There is sort of a festive atmosphere when the ship arrives and the town becomes very active.

 Bags of fruit headed to Tahiti
 Kathy and a whole lot of cargo in cardboard boxes.
Aranui 3 is a tight fit at the dock in Baie d' Hakahau, Marquesas French Polynesia
