This blog on New Caledonia is for those of you who ever wondered what life on a tiny island in the South Pacific might be like. Tired of bracing winter winds, the stress of an inner city or simply dreaming of a life change? This is a blog about what happens when, in the words of Yogi Berra, "you come to a fork in the road, [and] take it".

Swimming in September

Okay, so I am known by some to never enter a sea or ocean for fear of freezing to death. That is what growing up in Florida does to you.

Fabulous. I can't wait.

In the meantime, proof here, that in reality I am not the frileuse that everyone thinks I am. This is an attempt, in the month of September, to test the waters. Where? Ile aux Canards ...
