      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.

      ... for us, having previously killed them as we caught them by putting a corkscrew into their head. Sorry if that's too much info. We then squelched our way home with our booty, past all the posh restaurants, feeling smug that we'd caught our own dinner :-) I was very glad to be able to get into a hot shower! It was late and we were tired, but Jon cooked up a little of the fish and it was absolutely delicious. Sea to tummy in just a few hours. Snapper-tastic! ...

      ... promiscuous ;) and experience emotion. Sounds like the closest animal to a human I've ever heard of ;) On our return journey we went on the boom netting ride, like a huge hammock attached alongside the boat. Mum dived onto it first raising a cheer from the boat and multiple bikini bottoms and tops were everywhere other than where they should have been! One woman lost her grip and was catapulted backwards, the foamy waves sweeping her through a long line of male legs to the ...

      ... local coffee shop and had a nice walk along the water. Just from this small bay we could see heaps of Islands, some big and some small. There are 144 Islands in total off Bay of Islands. We found a miniature library which looked like an old, red English post box. Aunty Tia found some Jehovah witness articles in there, it was nice to see an example of the worldwide preaching efforts. Then we went headed to the local bakery, but the boys ...

      ... option for me - swimming with them in the wild is a dream come true :)! After tomorrow we will be heading back down towards Auckland airport so that I can fly down to Wellington on Tuesday. So far it's been a great week and I'm so glad I have had the opportunity to do some exploring by car. Big thanks to Rikki for driving, putting up with me and ignoring my horrific navigation skills! Until next time my lovely friends and family - stay safe and be happy ...
