Knysna x 10

Paihia is a wonderful town, much like Knysna in SA, but with breathtaking scenery. Surrounded by many islands, we explored one, we went to Russell via the Car ferry, boys enjoyed this. We explored the town a bit. If we thought Paihia was scenic, this is just insane. We walked on the pier, and while there, we chatted to an ex Kiwi cricketer, Kyle Mills, he was fishing with his kids, some other boys were on the pier as well. They were ...

The winner was from Japan in just over 40 minutes. Pretty impressive to say the ...

Moturoa Island, Motukiekie (a privately owned island of 28.8 hectares), Otehei bay, and Urupukapuka island (the largest island on the bay approx. 520 acres and with Coastline of 13.5km and fine sandy beaches). Then as we approached the open waters again, the captain spotted a school of dolphin! It was spectacular! They majestically swam next to our boat, racing us as the boat would speed up, and curving their bodies in and out of the water. They would swim right in front ...

... but breakfast beckoned and we reluctantly headed back to change.

After breakfast we had a very quick skype home - sorry Mums and Dads again but we will try to catch up in more detail soon - then it was on the bus.

After yesterday's long ride most of us were tired and it made sense to drive 30km or so to a drop off point. We were off loaded and soon on our way along the headland ...
