Hello all!!! Right now we're sitting aboard the Pacific Sun. I just got back from the Isle of Pines(New Caledonia). BEAUTIFUL!!!!! The sand is like talcom powder. We went snorkling - lots of pretty fish and even a few squids - and we went on a tour of the island, so I got a few pretty photo's! Yep, even spied some cool carved tikis. i will post some pics of em when I get home.

We'll have anotherday at sea tomorrow before heading off to Fiji - Bulla! We'll be visiting Yasawa-I-Rara, Suva and some other place I can't think of right now. Then we'll be heading off to Lifou (Loyalty Islands) and Villa (Vanuatu).

Hope you are all having fun going to work and all that

Hahahahahahahahahahaha

Yeh Rodeo - I got sand and shells in places I never knew i had

Today we was in Fiji - Yasawa-i-rara island, where they filmed Blue Lagoon. Lovely! Should see the lovely tapa map I bought

Gotta go - cheap drinks are asking for some company, and I am too polite to refuse...

Third Port: Suva (Fijian capital)

Fijian Cultural Village - Excellant! They outlined traditional Fijian culture and dres and customs. They staged singing and dancing, followed by a mock battle, followed by fire walking. Absolutely awesome.

Entry walkway

Fire walking:


Sign - crazy detail!


Masks at a market back in Suva itself:


Nice tapa map I picked up for $10 (aussie)

This just the first half of the photos. There is still 4 films to get photos from!

Customs was fairly relaxed about wood stuff. We got everything through okay, and declared everything we had. Untreated wood was okay just so long as it did not have visibale evidence of boras, rot, termites etc.
