just loving New Caledonia, it has such a variety of coastline and islands to explore.From the pristine white sand beaches of Isle de pins to the scorched bare cliffs of the south coast... today was the waterfall at Baie de Goro... beautiful!

back on the Mainland Southern coast heading up the East coast over the next few days.

Sitting in an anchorage just off Isle of Pines. Stunning white sand beaches and super clear water. We have a resident dolphin hanging around the bay. Almost got bowled over by him yesterday standing in a foot of water... He was chasing a fish and came right up to the beach! Very cool.

Meet another kiwi boat Manaroa III have had a few funny nights and lovely dinners with them.

enjoyed a lovely day of still weather and sunshine today. Saw a few humpbacks yesterday and had a fantastic snorkel today. The Girls are settling into boating life agin well... full of life! Great holding where we are, expect a bit or rain tonight... the most amazing landscape of scorched red earth around us, tall mountains and very rough terrain. diverse.
