      We had a fantastic stay at the Waterfront Suites and wish we could have stayed longer. The suite was well appointed and spotless, the staff friendly and helpful. The four of us (two adults, 10 and 13 year old children), had plenty of room in this two bedroom, two bath suite with kitchen, dining area, and living room. A washer and dryer were included - such a bonus for a vacation with kids. Great location and plenty of covered parking. The outdoor swimming pool was chilly - but it is almost winter and the kids enjoyed trying it out. We didn't pay extra for the view and most likely were given what was considered the worst room - the back windows were very close to a private home - but it didn't dampen our enthusiasm. Our two complaints were relatively minor - we were unable to use the purchased internet in the room (so they didn't charge us) and we needed to use portable heaters provided as it was rather chilly.

      Burning dolphins

      A travel blog entry by timwindle on Dec 27, 2014

      ... 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 ...

      From there to Whangerai where we found it was really warm as we walked along the boardwalk beside the posh yachts. We could have spent longer there but wanted to reach Waitangi and the Maori Treaty grounds before 4pm.
      We are staying in a very colourful Swiss Chalet Motel tonight, very close to the sea front, but not quite having a ...

      Had a Ferry ride to Piahia

      Took a gentle day today, although feeling much, much better. Took the Ferry to another small village across the bay called Piahia, slightly smaller than Russell but just as pretty. We also booked a trip for a four hour boat trip around the Bay of Islands culmination in a "drive through" The Hole in the Rock ( no - not a MacDonalds!). For this trip we got the ...

      ... the shopping hub of the town at a snails pace. It took a a whole hour to see it all. It was very quaint a seaside Penola but with many more good quality restaurants and cafe. We had tea at jimmy jacks rib shack, very nice place indeed , then walked the 15 minutes back to see what our motel was going to be like, and wow we were pleasantly surprised it was so much better than the sky city room. Beds were really comfy,blackout curtains and room to ...

      ... for Northland. Clear gum is amber. Tonnes of gum was shopped to the UK - would you believe to Birmingham - to a company ( who our guide was called Meredith's). The gum was melted down and used as a varnish for example as a deck varnish for ships. The clear really good stuff was turned into stones (amber) for jewellery.
