Welcome to Lifou, Loyalty Islands

Photos before blog - before we get to sea of shitty internet access....PS see day 6 photos too of towel animal for the day (turtle standing on hind legs) and also of Jakob having early night.
As you can see a bit of snorkelling and touring was done - no spoilers other than the photos.
Will update this daily blog tomorrow.
Our last port of call and another ‘native island’ as Jakob would call it – no city, no pollution; just natives, huts and beaches…
It was truly a struggle to get up and force ourselves to go ashore (tired we are) but we managed to get there - Glenn went off doing the touristy thing whilst Jakob and I stayed near the wharf and village. Once again Jakob consumed the juice of several coconuts (the flesh in them here was not that great) and then we went snorkelling. I have finally found something that I can do with Jakob that is not hampered by my neck condition – so we snorkelled and took photos underwater for what seemed like at least an hour or more and I think we both have sunburn to the back of our legs to prove it too!! Glenn came back thinking that we have been long gone back to the ship but we were still there, having played in the sand and then Jakob joined the local kids jumping off the pier.
Back to the ship and Jakob went to kids club for a while and Glenn and I relaxed – caught up with Lachlan and he has been enjoying himself with his mates – still couldn’t seem to get him interested in coming ashore but he seems to be enjoying himself anyway.
Dinner for Jakob was pizza from poolside café and then back to the room to watch the rest of a movie and relax for him. Once we took him back to kids club we went xmas shopping for those last little bits, dragged out the Santa stockings and then went to the main dining room for our dinner.
Yes, the sale of the house ‘contracts’ managed to be faxed through successfully so hopefully there will be no further hiccups and we can put our minds at rest now.
Santa was seen late in the afternoon sleighing down the top deck – so fingers crossed he will visit us tonight…. The towel of the night was a Pig – very clever indeed.
Well that’s it for today – tomorrow we are at ‘sea’ and it will be Christmas….
Merry Christmas to everyone – thinking of you whilst we will be doing it hard enjoying ourselves eating and playing!!
