It is a glorious day. We were in Huse Bay, Waikeke but got woken early by a nasty roll that would shake our boarding platform so we (well Rob because I stayed in bed) moved. Then Rob had a nap and I went off for a kayak so feeling very virtuous. Pics are of the […]

Well it has been fun, but back on diet now. Chicken and orange salad with avocado yogurt dressing for lunch. Much to my surprise Rob liked the dressing – he is usually a naked man!

It was a wet gloomy day. Leaving Issy Bay,  Auckland was shrouded in rain: I counted off the land marks – Iliomana Rock (the stick thing) with Rangitoto behind: Then Northern Leading, North Head, Bean Rock (which is a spectacular light house): and then a hop skip and a jump and we were tying up […]

We’ve had a fabulous day. Started off overcast but cleared and then got quite hot. Not enough wind to get in much of a sail but a good crossing of the Firth of Thames, including a visit by a dolphin – not that I saw it but I did get a pic of Rob looking […]
