    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! Had a few stops off along the way - especially to admire the gorgeous views. We didn't stop along …

    Today we met Nick, captain of the Vigilant - a 42ft boat taking us around the Bay of Islands. It was amazing. We passed some truly awesome sites (including the celebrity hideaway that costs $15,000 a night!). We were taken ashore to explore a beach and lookout then went back to the boat for lunch. We saw a penguin, dolphins, lots of gulls and crabs …

    ... with to old guys about my age about politics and politicians and how they are all money grabbing buggers who should be shot, or something like that before returning to the hotel for the three S's. After I'd shaved and showered I dressed for the wedding.

    As Sunisa and I walk out to the car it was still raining and blowing a gale but by the time we got to the church ...

    ... ship didn't sink! Captain Rob then entertained us with tales of his days as a prospector of sapphires in Australia. Nothing like a bit of an adventure on the high sea! A grand day out. Safely back on dry land we take off our pirates' hats and, rather than heading for the tavern for some grog, returned "home" for a nice cuppa before heading off to Long Beach as the sun is setting. Back to just being tourists ...
