Noumea and Some Catch Up Pics

Cathy and Dave from Light Speed

Light Speed came alongside to give us access to their personal wifi hot spot before we left Fiji

The red rocks of New Caledonia indicate mineral and metal deposits

Ore carrier passes close as we sail down the lagoon toward Noumea

Underway in a nice following 20 knot breeze

A cruise ship passes close to our stern in Noumea

Cruise ship departing for an overnight passage

Rani enjoys a birthday glass or wine with a full moon behind her.

And yet another ship passing our anchorage

Rani dances on her birthday 

Cathedral de St. Joseph

Statue of Joan of Arc

Birthday lunch of vegetable couscous for Rani and Coucous Poulet for Chris

The locals carve totems similar in some ways to those from the west coast of Canada

So glad you had a safe passage, enjoy your new harbour and stay, Happy B'day Rani.

We sold Shaneil in prep for retirement and move back to Ontario, now own a land yacht (5th wheel trailer).
