Whangaroa Harbour – 17-1-10

January 17th, 2010 · 2 Comments

Oh well – back to our usual fishing state of zilch. Left harbour this morning and tried off Srephenson Island, did not even get any promising bites. Then tried same spot as yesterday and still nothing. Oh well – there is still the fish market!

Headed into Whangaroa and had friends for tea. Pot-roasted a beef bolar cut in pressure cooker. I’m not good at pot roasts – over cook them and they dry out, but pressure cooker makes them so easy and they come out moist and tender. Even made gravy out of liquid – was delicious. Thanks Wholly Cow – your meat is very good. Served beef with roast vegetables.

Tomorrow we start heading home – will skip the BoI and head for Whangamumu or Whangaruru harbours. And then a long leg to Kawau. But depends on the weather.

    Yep. May befirst attempt since that time I frightened the hell out of Kirsten with my gravy. Remember? I’m pretty sure she thought we were trying to poison her!
