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).

  1. Here’s to beating the cyclone! And your pictures are simply beautiful. Can’t tell you how much we look forward to your posts and photos.
    Hoping you are enjoying calmer seas.

  2. So happy to hear you left Fiji before that cyclone, which turned out to be so devastating. I am just catching up on your blogs (in reverse order); your descriptions are just great!
