    We arrive in Paihia late afternoon, after diving the Poor Knights, and we're both pretty tired – we chill out with a glass of wine on the balcony (it’s rare we have one so we like to use 'em when we do!) and have an early night.

    We explore the town the next morning. It’s small, so doesn’t take too long. First stop …

    We walked back to our motel and stopped to browse some shops. Jeff got a chocolate milkshake and Natalie tried her first "long black"- espresso and hot water.

Once back on the boat we returned rapidly, via Russell, to Paihia. Then we dashed to get cold drinks and snacks from the cafe on the wharf before jumping onto a minibus for our afternoon tour.
