This was the scene in Sydney as the ship prepared to leave from Circular Quay.
Our first stop was Noumea. The town centre was fairly run down but we took a bus to the beach and had a lovely swim in the clear, warm water. Nice to hear the locals chatting in french. Some of the sunbaking beauties were very undressed!
We then had a stop at Mystery Island and were tendered in from the ship. A beautiful day for a swim and a very picturesque place.
This enterprising fellow took people on boat rides.
