April 16 - N is for Norfolk Island
Discovered in 1774, by Captain Cook, Norfolk Island was first ‘settled’ in 1788, when six women and nine male convicts, and eight free men, from the First Fleet, were sent there. This settlement lasted until 1814. The next settlement was 1825 until 1855. The third settlement was from 8 June 1856 and is still going today.
Paul and I spent an idyllic week there in May 2008. We explored this tiny, 34.62km, island has some beautiful scenery, crystal blue water, lush greenery and historical buildings make it a great destination.
Bye for now,
