Birds of New Caledonia…and Cyclones too

The waters got a bit rough last night. But the saloons stayed open. Maybe it had something to do with the Captain’s announcement that by leaving Fiji when we did we beat a Cyclone, complete with 60-foot waves, by 2-days.

Anyway, here are some pictures of Birds we saw on Noumea, New Caledonia. (Sorry it’s slow getting the pictures posted, but they take a lot of bandwidth out here).
