        ... all the way to the end, down the river and up to Harura falls. Sadly we couldn't go under them, but we got really close for a picture! And Bob loved it so much that she can't wait to do it again! Our final day morning was spent aboard a boat touring the 'Bay of Islands', seeing seals and a pseudo-Orca. We even climbed up a hill on a brief island stopover to 'Cooks lookout' and took some pics! Paihia is a stunning, relaxing place and I hope to return before our NZ tour is ...

        ... and headed towards the Treaty House. After a wander thru museum we headed towards the Treaty House where a performance was just commencing, timing beautiful. Delightful performance by six Maori people on the site where the treaty was signed by the chiefs and the British in 1840. Traditional dancing and singing and explanations of weaponry- well worth a visit. Such a delightful happy race of people, we really look ...

We clambered up, this hill was even tougher than the other. There was barely anything to hold on to. We reached the top only to find there was no way down the other side. I was getting more and more mad at the situation with every passing minute. Back down we went, this pushed me to breaking point. ...

        After our two days in Auckland we went and picked up our campervan which we'll be travelling around in for six weeks. We didn't really know what it'd be like but it's pretty good actually. Very spacious and not too bad to drive, although it's pretty slow - we get overtaken a lot. The bed is actually really comfortable and the kitchen area is alright with a fridge, stove, kettle etc. The tap in the sink doubles up as a shower head which you can pull out and use. The only ...

        ... then leaping out of the water about 6 to 8 feet into the air. The sights were stunning. Stopped off at Otehei Bay on the Island of Urupukapuka on the way back, a little display of Maori culture, followed by tea and cakes. A very memorable cruise around some beautiful Islands.  Had real problems uploading the photo's yesterday so gave up in the end. Have managed two so far this evening will try another one now. That's failed so will send as it ...
