New Caledonia, South Pacific, April-May 2021
From a short but sweet visit to the humid, evergreen rainforest, where the beautiful fern trees grow high and majestic…
… we soon find ourselves back on the water. After the lockdown, where no navigation nor island visits were allowed, followed by some time spent in the city of Noumea, to stock up on food and necessities for the boat, we are very pleased to freely be back on the vast, blue lagoon.
More wind is in the forecast and we finally get to gear up with kites and boards for some sweet riding powered by the wind. After a long break from kitesurfing, it surely is fun to be playing among the chops again.
As long as weather conditions allow, we like to spend plenty time at each place we go. Out here we are surrounded by the soundtrack we enjoy so much, the pure sound of wind, waves and seabirds.
Where the sky and ambient light paints the scen, no moment is the same. Even the view from the very same spot is ever-changing.
As winter is arriving in the southern hemisphere, days are getting shorter and colder. What is short and cold is relative though… ;-)
