Alofi Harbor, Niue

Iron Mistress on a mooring in Alofi Harbor. We were lucky enough to get one of the last moorings available in the harbor when we arrived..

Dinghy Crane at Wharf

The only way to get ashore in Niue -- raise your dinghy by the crane, put it on a trolley and wheel it to the side on the wharf.

Crazy Uga's was the gathering place for cruisers at the end of the day.

Niue coastline

The rugged coastline with caves and chasms is beautiful

Abandoned Homes

Many abandoned homes scattered the landscape, a result of the January hurricane. Many families left Niue for New Zealand.

Town Fair

We went to the local town fair held at the high school grounds. Prizes were given for the best homegrown produce.

Enjoying the Fair

Fresh fruit smoothies were delicious

Coconut Crab

Niue's Coconut Crabs were a big hit at the Fair and the word was they are good eating. After the Fair the crabs were for sale so we just had to try them.

Dinner's Ready

One of our crabs after it was steamed....
