The Pastel Corals at Tatafa

We discovered another lovely beach to explore at Tatafa: an uninhabited island .  I found the cutest little bright red hermit crab walking around on the beach.  He was a very photogenic little guy and I followed him for awhile.

Telekitonga - Our Last Anchorage of the Season in the Haapai Group

On our last night in the Ha 'Apai group we anchored off Telekitonga.  The day we arrived the swell was coming from a rather unusual Southwest direction and the West side of the island had the most violent shore-breaking surf we have seen.

It's not typical to see such breaking waves on a beach.  Normally a barrier reef shelters the beach.

Dive Bombing Birds of Tofanga

This is our second visit to Tofanga.  We stopped here in August and liked it so much we came back.  On our previous visit it was whale-central.  At least 3 times a day I saw whales breaching and swimming. This time nada.  We think they have all headed back to Antarctica.
Flying over my head after coming towards me then turning up.
