Just before Christmas 2010, my parents treated the children and I to a cruise of the South Pacific which included Noumea. Having been there before I was more than okay with staying on the boat but even though my parents weren’t disembarking, my father “paid” my children to step foot on land. Thanks DD!
Fortunately there was a beautiful park near where the shipped had docked which we were all more than happy to explore. Then again, who can resist a Christmas Tree?!
And wouldn’t you know it, much to the children’s delight, this same park also contained a small fair that more than filled in our afternoon! First the flying-thingy…
Then the bouncing castle.
It was a quiet afternoon but fun. We even managed to misplace Young Sir’s cruise pass whilst in the park but believe it or not, someone had handed it back in by the time we re-boarded! :)
