    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. Hughie enjoyed driving, although the roads are very twisty. They don't feel unsafe though. Every sharp bend has a recommended speed sign and there are plenty overtaking lanes. The …

    ... my drawing of the dolphins and she said it was good. "How about you draw a dolphin leaping through the air?" She said. So I did. She came around again to ask how I was doing and she said it was really good. I should have taken a photo of the dolphins I drew, but I didn't bring my iPad.

Once we narrowed down my wants and needs, a day on the sail ship Ghunga II was suggested and then booked. The nice lady gave me strict instruction to be on the warf at 09:15 for collection. So after back to my tent I went, for a magnificent repast of noodles and a cup of tea! 05:30 ...

    ... br> After a while on the beach, it was time for a drive up a creek and up to a sand dune. Once we had stopped, the bus driver gave a quick briefing on the best way to surf a sand dune, and we headed up the dune to give it a try. Climbing sand dunes is hard work, but it is worth all the pain to be able to ride down on the board, heading straight for the creek at the bottom. I had so much fun I had to go up again, even though my leg doesn't do ...
