Nukuʻalofa, Tonga #travel

We made a brief stop at Nukuʻalofa during our very first cruise. The weather was horrid and it poured with rain. We decided to go for a walk anyway and managed to get very wet, but it was fun exploring a little of the Tongan capital.

Tonga Washing

Tonga Flowers

Tonga Harbor

Fishing boats at the harbor.

By the time we returned to the ship, the rain had eased off, and it turned into better day. Our clothes, however, took longer to dry out!

  1. Great pictures. Love the carving. It’s always amazing to see what someone with talent can carve from a hunk of wood.

  2. Love the tiki carving!

  3. Even with the rain it sounds like a fun little excursion :D

  4. It was fun wandering around, even in the rain, and it cleared up so all was well.
