Isle of Pines, New Caledonia

Friday, 4 October 2013


View 2013 Polynesian Cruise on greynomadm's travel map.

An early start to the day as I greet the sunrise and then linger on Deck 15 and watch the ship's progress to our destination. I have obviously confused this destination with one we visited in 2010. I'll have to check out where that was. Joined Jenny for breakfast and later convinced her that she should see the doctor about her persistent cough. She's been given some antibiotics - at a price of course !!

Collected our tender tickets and went ashore to see the brilliant white beach sand and clear water - no we didn't enter the water but it looked nice. The temperature continued to increase and we headed back to the ship. On downloading my images from the camera I discovered there were a number 'missing'. I suspect there was some form of error message I didn't see on the LCD screen.

An early lunch and we retired to the stateroom where Jenny succumbed to the drowsiness caused by the medication. I've decided to join her in her relaxation.

Jenny slept soundly for most of the afternoon but was still less than her bubbly normal self. I convinced her to order Room Service for dinner tonight and also for breakfast. She will see how she feels tomorrow before deciding whether she will venture out for her craft session.

With Jenny in the stateroom there were just five of us for dinner and we were the only table in our section that had anyone. No one seems to know why there were so few at dinner.

Jenny's 'Room Service' was judged better than OK so she must have enjoyed it. There is another of the wacky melodramas in the Vista Lounge but it doesn't start until 2145 and that's too late for me. The ship has turned Westward on our way to Sydney, two sea-days away.

I'll take this up to Deck 14 and send it off and retire to the stateroom.

More tomorrow.

The water at Isle of Pines is awesome! This is where the kids had little silver fish nibbling at their toes! Beautiful sand - just stunning.

Sorry to hear Mum's not well. Hope the antibiotics kick in soon and she gets better.

Love to you both from all of us.
