Fun Oceans across the Pacific, took a couple of snaps between the children’s activities. This is the adult pool, which was later emptied after this shot, but the kids had a great time ‘wave riding’, in the pool behind. It did result in three stitches in my sixteen year olds finger, and i am so glad the ship agreed to re-imburse the doctors fee for the procedure. I would of loved access to the front of the ship for some shots.

Did I say “a rushed holiday ?”

Actually so glad i took this drive through Lifou, Loyalty Islands, which is known for its avacado plantations. It really is a beautifully kept island. Driving through the island we were fortunate enough to see their chiefs Bure and so many gorgeous homes. The locals are very religious and take so much pride in adorning the cemeteries with beautiful flowers. More to come.

Swimming in the garden yesterday with the children. So nice to play with colour, something I enjoy at the moment, in these lovely summer months. Happy New Years Eve everyone and may your New Year be safe and prosperous. My heart goes out to the families and friends of the recent air disasters. It hits so much harder when your friends family members are among the unaccounted for. May you have all have the strength to stay strong. Thinking of you today Reni.
