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".

Ile des Pins: Spectacular Tropical Fish

Picture-perfect, we had never expected to see such a range and multitude of tropical fish in New Caledonia, but indeed we did on Christmas day - in the Baie de Kunamera on Ile des Pins. Our first outing in the morning was more successful than our early afternoon outing, but we were truly spoiled by the company of our angel fish (and other) underwater friends on both trips. Mind you, we simply walked into the water and swam around the bay's sacred rock - no boats were necessary to take us out into a reef. How easy, and thoroughly amazing, at once.
