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".

Wednesdays at 5:15 pm: Sailboats

One of the things I love most about living in Nouméa is the view - which you can get from just about anywhere. We are very lucky to have large sliding glass doors looking out onto the sea (lagoon). For me, this is the definition of heaven. To top things off, every Wednesday at 5:15 pm, we have a parade of sailboats that sail through our little bay. I am generally working at 5:15 pm, but I always look up to see the boats. They remind me of the freedom we all have, to live our dreams on a Wednesday at 5:15 pm.

That sounds like a great title for book: Live your dreams on Wednesdays at 5:15 pm! =)
