Sea Mounts 30 Oct 1927 UTC
The South Pacific is littered with islands. I mentioned Fiji as the "land of 1,000 hazards". But in the middle of the ocean? About half way between New Caledonia and Australia there is a sea mount that actually sticks above the surface. By definition a guess it is an island but it is so small its more like a rock. It is cleverly positioned on the direct route between New Caledonia and Bundeburg, Australia. Figures.
