      We stayed for 1 night in our camper van.

      We arrived quite late after a long drive and received a warm and helpful welcome. The site looks straight at the falls - lovely.

      We used the small but clean kitchen for breakfast. The showers and loo were OK. We hired a kayak for an hour the day we left and kayaked right up to the falls - great experience.

      ... were pleasantly surprised when our skipper quickly got word of another boat who'd found a pod of dolphins. Suze and I were sat on the deck of the boat and the dolphins were so close to us we could have easily reached out and touched them. There were about 30 dolphins in the pod all with different names which the dolphin expert Floppy (yes her name is Floppy) pointed out. Our favourite dolphin was baby Charlie, he was tiny ...

In WWII, soldiers would carry the honey with them and smear it on any wounds to prevent infection. Good for whatever ails you.

He said it was easy because we were on a jet boat but we could almost touch the rock sides. He warned about the swell which was actually worse when we got out the other side as we were sideways on ...

      ... my eyes trying to spot the animals as we moved backwards towards them. We were losing them and our boat sped up, meaning that more freezing water was splashing up onto my legs and thighs. Eventually the guide and driver gave up and we returned to the main section of the boat. I wasn't too disappointed, I was tired, hadn't brought a towel and was chattering a bit with my feet in the water. I figured I would have happily paid the ticket price not to die of ...

      ... walk round the long way we both climbed a small rock face to reach the top where the monument stood. We arrived back at the cottage exhausted but happy and after a quick lunch headed into KeriKeri. We paid a visit to an old store before getting more wine and heading off to Paihia for Daryl's Dinner Cruise.
