      We collected our hire car at 9.30 this morning and set off northwards to Bay of Islands and our motel in Paihia. The car is a nice 4 year old Toyota Corolla saloon.

After about two kilometres the path veers away from the river and the surrounding area changes frequently, -a large area of marshland appears, some tree fern filled gullies, and eventually a very long boardwalk traverses huge mangrove swamps. This area is so quiet, that it is possible to hear the popping sounds of air escaping from the mangrove roots. ...

      ... was time to leave so as not to stress out the mothers and babies, I learnt that the babies are unable to maintain their body heat and have to feed ever 3 minutes and when humans boat or predators are around the mothers and babies get very stressed and the babies can die.
