    ... amazing by the way) and down to their jacuzzi. We spent about an hour in there in the early hours of the morning sipping on beers, provided by them, watching a lunar eclipse with loads of stars in the sky.

Her second trip was free as she got a voucher to do it again after not seeing anything on her first one. We received the same voucher when we finished our trip, but we were left with the impression that the company ...

    ... were plenty of sheep droppings on and around the footpath but we didn't see any sheep. The DoC must allow grazing by sheep which would have to be transported there by boat. 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. It was certainly all go. First stop was a winery at the next town, Keri Keri. In the UK ...
