More playing in and on the water in New Caledonia

Or course, we also spent a fair bit of time in and on the water playing without the kiting gear: snorkeling, swimming, dingy surfing, sailing, yoga and fishing ...

For his birthday, Johnathan wanted to go dingy surfing.  This time we made it more interesting by using the one of the kite boards.

And Trickle saw lots of use.  Here Victoria is sailing back from where the kids were camping

and time for yoga.

and the sea continues to provide food.


  1. Can Benjamin swim yet? What means of instruction are you doing?

    Our son is 6 and we're having some difficulty getting him adjusted to being in the water without any floater-assistance.



    1. Not really. He is four and really comfortable in the water this year but has not made the leap to swimming without his floater vest. Now that we are in pools more this year hopefully we can progress as it is still a stressor to have a non-swimmer onboard.
