Noume…Baie de L’orphelinat

This area does not have a beach, it not place to swim. There are a lot of boats docked here at Port Du Sud, some people live on their sailboats and work in Noumea.We walked past the Marina…along the walking track

Baie de l’Orphelinat – Orphanage Bay : from Mont Vénus, view the bay bathed in early morning, or watch the sun set behind the sailing boats at anchor.

We did notice the bleached coral along the water indicating contamination..

 Baie de l’Orphelinat (Bay of Orphans), named in memory of the orphans of Empress Eugénie sent to New Caledonia to be brides for the first settlers. Along the bay sits a special centennial monument in the form of an anchor, erected in 1953 to celebrate a century of French presence in New Caledonia. We headed back into town as wanted to visit the USA memorial. This memorial is dedicated to U.S. service members who helped ensure the freedom of New Caledonia during World War II. The monument was erected in 1992, commemorating the arrival of the first 20,000 US troops in Nouméa. Over several years, nearly a million American soldiers stayed on the island during the Second World War.    http://princess2016.travellerspoint.com/3/

The sun was setting…and I was anxious to get the sunset from the ship, but we did better..we got the ship in front of the sunset as we headed back
