We got in finally, and are not in the marina in Noumea. This is a strange city, obviously french, but with a large number of drunks on the streets, security guards outside shops etc. Neither Ina nor Debs feel happy going to the shops on their own, which is a first throughout the pacific. Therefore we will be out of here in the morning, heading off to a remote anchorage for a few days before coming back in to pick up our last load of duty free fuel, and clear out for Australia, probably on friday. The only downside of that is that there will be no internet connection, and even worse, no french bread!!
Oh well I guess we will survive somehow!
