Circumnavigating Grande Terre: Koumac

We are having a quiet morning anchored off the beach/park next to the Koumac marina..Sky is clearing. Yesterday, there was confusion about where the harbormaster would berth ADAGIO, so we decided to anchor out and take the dinghy in to the marina in the morning to look things over.

Beautiful sunset, no green flash, but we are bound to see one over the next few days now that we are on the West coast of New Caledonia. There is a park ashore, and a sailing club with small boats of various sizes. The restaurant at the marina was busy during the evening night. We arrived in Koumac a day earlier than originally planned so we were not rushed and slept late in the morning.

A man and his two sons were retrieving their ski boat at the launch ramp and offered to drive us to the fair grounds for the annual northern regional fair and rodeo. Horses, livestock, many farmers selling their excellent produce, handicrafts, and of course rodeo events. It was quite a scene and very pleasant.
