    ... from one side of the bay to the other. Russel is far from ‘a hell hole’. It has a beautiful harbour front, again with a few shops lining its main streets. It also is home to the oldest church in New Zealand, Christ Church. It is a stunning little church surrounded by a little white picket fence. We found our campsite and pulled up for the evening. It has a lovely playground for the kids, and a great kitchen and dining room area where we ...

    We spend some time talking to the wildlife preservation people. Apparently, they have the dorsal fin of 494 dolphins between the top of the island and the midway point of ...

    ... about the size of a large supermarket. It was such a unique place with scenery I had never seen before. It was a bit late in the day to do any activities such as kayak to the islands so decided to save that all for tomorrow. We got back to the hostel and had an early night after cooking. It was so much nicer than spending the night in the airport. Tomorrow we are going to kayak around the Bay of Islands. I'll let you know how it ...
