    ... manages to get a head and part body into the boat. Around noon, Steve calls stumps, even though we are still experiencing some activity, so we retrieve our lines and return to shore.  Steve then sets about filleting our catch so we can take it home.  What a feast - over two nights we enjoy grilled kingfish and snapper followed by kingfish risotto both superbly cooked by Louise and Peter.  The remaining fish is frozen and left for the unit's owners. Day 5: We ...

Bye bye Paihia, back to Auckland for second leg. Seems strange we have known the group for 4 days and yet so sad to see people leave. Big (and I mean big) meal for us all for the expensive cost of $1.50 each! Cheap food, great company. I hope the next group joining us are as good. (More pics to ...

    ... about the size of a large supermarket. It was such a unique place with scenery I had never seen before.
