What an exciting day!
Sunday, my day off. I slept in and it was very beautiful outside.
I had breakfast.
Then met up with Ray at 7:30 and went on a road trip to the North of the Island.
We stopped by at a coffee place, which was nice. They even had their own coffee plants next to the building.
Then headed North! The road was rough but the scenery was beautiful.
And finally, we arrived at Poum.
We put our things down at our table at the restaurant, then went to the beach at the back of the restaurant.
There was a dog there, who seemed to spend his whole day fishing.
Such a relaxed dog! His name was Brian.
I went snorkelling for the first time. Took a few minutes to get used to, but once I got used to it, I loved it! I also attached the Sony Actioncamera to my goggles to record some videos which I’ll put here later.
After snorkelling, went inside to have lunch. Lobster and crab!
Brian then lead us for a walk, to show us some cool places. He would lead and we would follow, but he would go quickly, turn around and wait for us to catch up before going further.
He brought us out to the tip and then swam out, but too far for us.
The rocks were very sharp and some slippery, especially the ones under water. Good thing I had my aqua-shoes on! But even with them, I could feel the sharp rocks!
We called Brian to come back because it was too far out to follow, so he lead us back.
We saw holes on the beach and wondered what they were, we asked Brian and he started digging it up for us, and revealed a crab!
On the way back home, we stopped by the supermarket at Koumac. I bought a cup to boil my water in, detergent and sponge to clean my cup, and some noodles.
Here’s some panoramas from my phone.
and some Googlemap screenshots to show where I was:
Time to sleep, then back to work tomorrow!
