    This morning we picked up our lovely Hugo camper and headed towards Russell and The Bay of Islands. We bumped into Calum's friend (who worked at the camper place - small world!) and then got going. Had a lovely trip up here - the scenery is beautiful!

We then hit the road to Russell which included a "handy" short cut which turned out to be off road driving through a forest that fairly put Chester through his paces! Finally arrived at Russell in one piece and the sun was shining so we went wander around the town then drove to a beautiful view point for lunch where you could see Russell harbour and the ...

    We had a late breakfast followed by a leisurely stroll down to Russell Town for a bit of retail therapy - I bought a bushmans hat, I look good in that (NOT), with on other smaller one. I left my National Trust hat in the Public Toilets in Auckland.
