We left Kuto on Ile des Pins this morning. A bit sad really.
Amazing what a bit of peer pressure can do … we walked up the mountainous Pic N’ga Track (262 m), the island’s highest point. Fantastic views! We chose the day well as a cruise ship was in port, along with its 4,000 Aussie tourists. I think the pics will tell the story!
We are now feeling our time here in New Cal is slipping away, quickly. We will have been here 3 months on the 28th August, which will be time to leave, as we can only stay here 90 days within a 180-day period. We will check-out from Noumea on the 25th August, island hopping our way to Vanuatu.
We will make the most of the last few weeks with a visit to the southern lagoon’s Kouare island, a 42 nautical mile trip tomorrow, where we are planning on some great outer reef snorkeling. Perhaps our last. With an easterly breeze we are hoping it will be a long sail, no motors!
