Norfolk Island Day 3

Inspector Climate and I had planned an action packed day for Day Three in Norfolk Island.

In the morning, we went to the Norfolk Island craft fair to check out the goods. Unfortunately, I was pretty disappointed. I felt like most of the goods were really trinket-y and didn't seem that homemade. However, we did score some Norfolk Island chocolates which was important because it was Easter.

After the craft fair, we headed off into the national park to do some walking. People had been telling us that the walks were hilly and we should beware. But sometimes it's hard to tell, I mean we were the only tourists under 50 on the island so how hard could they be?

We started our drive and stopped off at puppy point. I not so secretly hoped they were giving away free puppies. They were not.


You'll come to see with my photos of Norfolk Island that I was rather obsessed with two things: the sky and the water.

Hey there's Inspector Climate checking out the possible landing spot of Captain Cook.


I learned how to use the self timer on my camera! Our world's change for ever.


This is one of the photos I took along our walk. It was very hilly. You know in the Lizzie Bennet diaries when she's at Pemberly and Darcy tells her the hills can be unforgiving. That is what I thought of this entire walk. The hills were...unforgiving, but so preeetty!


This is us at the half way point.



In Norfolk Island, cows legally have the right of way on the roads and people don't really fence them in so much as fence them out. These cows are just chilling by the side of the road and chewing cud by the ruins. You know, as you do.

Mist is pretty.

Inspector Climate and I rented snorkels and headed out into the reef. It wasn't the most exciting snorkelling I've ever done, but there were some rainbow coloured fish.



Just wait until the next instalment of this trip where we had a very interesting dinner...

  1. The discovery of your camera's timer really did change your world! It is nice to be in your own photos from time to time, just to prove you were actually there.

    The mist photo is particularly gorgeous.

  8. So. Much. Blue! I live in an often-gray place so that much blue is a shock to my senses! I feel like my brain would be buzzing (in a very good way) if I visited that place (and I might refuse to ever leave!).

  9. Oh much gosh I had forgotten what a searing blue the sea and the sky is down there. Looks just like the beach where i'm from in NZ. And you guys are such a cute couple!

  15. Cannot handle the gorgeousness of these pics!! I seriously need to go to Norfolk Island now. It looks right up my alley.

    Oh, and I totally understand how life-changing figuring out the self-timer can be. I'm pretty sure I only have couple shots of me and Max after we'd been together for like 4 years because before that, I didn't know how to set the damn timer and was too shy to ask strangers to take our pic.
