Port Moselle Marina
Sunday 3/11 – Thursday 7/11
On Sunday we returned to Noumea to prepare for our crossing to New Zealand.
On the way we stopped at a reef for a few last hours of swimming and snorkeling.
We arrived at Port Moselle in the afternoon and had to anchor outside as the Marina is not open on Sundays.
We were soon in the Dinghy all of us with computers and smart phones, heading for “Le Bout du monde” our office and drinking place in the Marina.
Monday morning I managed to get a place on the visitors pontoon which makes life easier with 5 people on board that comes and goes at all times of the clock.
We have now spent three days of provisioning and checking of the weather for the crossing. The “Dawnbreaker kids” have also had time for some heavy partying.
The weather now looks good and we will leave Thursday morning for Opua, New Zealand. Approx. 900 NM south.
I include some pics of our time in New Caledonia.
Lots of boats when we arrive at Noumea. Some looks a bit homemaid.
Nice place for a cold beer. Sailing canoe
Diego ready for the big plunge. Dinner on the beach.
Hermit crab eating on a relative. Look I found a new light weight house!
Alice and Sanna in a Jive. Throwing an evil eye.

There is a good view from the top. Where did the track go?
Sea snake. Another great sunset.
Halloween. 231 steps to the top.
