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: Where Does the Pool End and the Bay Begin?

Photo by Laurent Guiader, 2005.
After a 45-minute traipse through thick forest and about 10 minutes of wading through ankle-to-knee-deep water, we arrived at the Meridien for lunch. What a bonus! What views! What paradise! We had a wonderful meal (Laurent enjoyed the freshly grilled coquilles St. Jacques and Sophie and I especially loved the huge, fresh salad that came as an appetizer and the tiramisu for dessert). Seated on the terrace, poolside (view pictured above), none of us wanted to leave. But off we went for another half-an-hour venture to Ile des Pins' natural piscine (or pool). See more below.
