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".

Breakfast and Lunch (and Work) in the Garden

This is our view from the lunch table - and the breakfast table, for that matter. Ah, an ocean view for breakfast - in November. Who would have thought?

Sundays is often Pancake Day (pancake mix imported from the United States). I whip up a batch of pancakes for about 11 o'clock and we skip lunch. This last weekend Laurent and Sophie were off to the beach early after pancakes while I slaved over a new proposal for Sophie's school Web site. I happily delivered it yesterday for meetings that will take place this morning and this evening. We'll see what everyone thinks of the "charte graphique" and the structure I've laid out ... with luck it will pass and we can go on to another round of user tests before starting the actual site.

I should mention that I increasingly sit at this table (pictured above) with my wireless connection - slaving away thinking and writing and copying and pasting. Alas. Can you imagine a better work environment?
