Day 7 and almost time to go home. Our week of doing a lot of not very much has caught up with us and we’ve had a day of doing even less. And still we’re enjoying it.
We spent this morning geocaching in a nearby town.

We started Day 5 with a peaceful walk through the 100 acre reserve which, apart from the birds, we had all to ourselves. We saw a shy emerald dove, some white terns and many black noddies that have the unnerving habit of flying straight at you.

One recent reviewer mentioned they’d done some geocaching on the island. This was something we’d tried years ago but didn’t really get into but thought we’d give it another go.
If you’ve never heard of geocaching but you like puzzles, games and the outdoors you should look it up. This worldwide, online treasure hunt is a great way to find places you would never have normally gone and to learn a little bit about places you’re visiting, or even your local area. You’ll probably be surprised to find how many caches near you right now.
I lost count of the people who asked me what we were going to do on Norfolk Island for a week. I was more concerned that a week wouldn’t be long enough for everything we wanted to see and do.

Day 1 started somewhat earlier than we expected when our daughter went in to labour and made it to hospital with 9 minutes to spare before our 2nd grandson was born. We didn’t have time to meet him before we had to check in so we toasted his arrival with an early morning drink at the airport.
Anyone who’s ever cruised will know that shore tours can be expensive.
There’s no argument that they’re perfect for some people. If you want everything organised and the security of the guarantee to get you back to the ship on time, then the cruise company’s shore tours might be for you.
