Thu 20 June 2013 Noumea

Pat, Sharon and I went kayaking in the Dumbea River in our first port of call, Noumea. We drove to the river,then paddled for 20 minutes upstream, pulling the kayak over low parts. We were split up with hunky males behind us in 2-person kayaks. Really it was just to distribute the weight better! Time for a rest and a swim although the water was too cold for me! Back in the kayaks downstream which was much quick and the river had risen a little so we didn’t have to get out and push. Back to the ship for lunch with the rest of the gang who’d gone on an island tour.

I did the earring workshop and went into Noumea by myself while the others went on the cultural centre tour. Boring! I explored the Noumea Museum and the shopping centre. Bought a necklace for 1000 frances (marked down from 3000). Had an icecream at the shop in the customs building and explored the market on the 1st floor.
