Breathtakingly beautiful!!! Norfolk Island - is part of the Commonwealth of Australia, but it enjoys a large degree of self-governance. Together with two neighbouring islands, it forms one of Australia's external territories. It has 2,300 people living on 35 km2. Its capital is Kingston. ~ ~ ~ On MM's Bucket List!!!
According to legend, Norfolk Island is the most haunted place in the Pacific. A stroll between these gravestones reveals the history of what was once Britain’s worst convict colony. So bad was it, convicts sought execution as relief from suffering. If I close my eyes, I can hear the screams, the resigned sighs – amidst the sound of waves brushing the sand.
