Here we are!  Nuka Hiva, on the Marquesas Islands in FRENCH POLYNESIA
This is a brand new tropical experience for us.
Yes, we are here...pinch me!
It's just amazing to see such foliage and floral trees everywhere.
This looks just like a postcard
Don't get so excited to swim here, these are shark-infested waters
I don't even know what to call these interesting trees
This sort of tree is found everywhere on the island
Isn't this something that you could learn to live seeing?
Here is is, taking it all in
Yes, I can learn to like this a lot!
I hope this means GOOD LUCK!
Everything on the island smells like flowers
Look how cool this is!  And, our ship is in the back.
These trees intertwine around eachother, something very unique
There isn't much evidence of tourism on this quiet island
I'm not even sure what this was!  We almost ate one, but then decided against it!
Ah, just another boring flower among millions of others.
It's me with the locals in a fruit tent
Yes, the shopping has started!
And, yes, in true Zilbert tradition, the best deals were had with Mark in charge of the bargaining!
The sounds set the mood for our journey of the day
Delicious, sweet and plentiful!
We could spend forever here!
Oh, did we say that flowers are everywhere?
What a great, yet tiring, day!  And, we snatched some flowers, too!  I think that Mark got something for his neck, too!
Look how nice the ship looks!
And, as we depart the Marquesas Islands, we have a special gift for ourselves.
