We have had a great last few days enjoying some amazing snorkeling, remote little beaches, sharks, and a great anchorage. The weather here has been fantastic. Yes it get's a little windy but we haven't seen the New Caledonia wind that is typical for this area. We have a few little showers that pass over it seems every third day and then the sun comes out again. The waters are the brilliant turquoise you see in the calendars and screen savers... when the wind dies down and the waters calm they are truly spectacular. The winds here are quite swirly and it seems they change by the hour... but with all that said and done we can't complain.
We are here outside of Kuto on Ile Des Pins and are waiting for tomorrow to head out for the 30 mile jaunt to these outer lagoon little islands. There should be epic snorkeling and hopefully on the way we will be able to catch and actually land a fish. The kids have had a great time snorkeling here and just playing around in the water. The water does get quite chilly but they seem to take it quite well and come in for a warm up and then head back out again. With the weather being quite cloudy, sunny, rainy... and then the pattern starts up again all in a day... it is hard to get into a warm groove. They are still little troopers and are making the best of it and enjoying the beaches at least when it is a little too chilly to swim.
Alina heading into the beach for a little reading time... so independent, growing up too fast but you have to love it...
Hugs and Love to everyone.
