... 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 ...
