Ile des Pins: Kuto Bay

October 6th: Our friends James and Lorna aboard MIND THE GAP were anchored nearby in Kuto Bay. The weather was beautiful and we were happy to be back in our favorite area of New Caledonia.

We had our friends Cleo, Albert and Tony aboard for dinner. Albert told us the story of how he and Tony had obtained permission in Paris from a high official to establish the first commercial dive center in New Caledonia, in the Isle of Pines. Cleo brought me a poem she had written about the Kagu bird.

The next morning, large schools of 6 inch long fish were feeding on the surface, creating flashing, silver swirls.
