... time to relax with a nice Sangria on the dock.

The hole in the rock cruise was quite exciting, as the sea was quiet rough, and I was very thankful I had finally found some good motion sickness medication this morning.

... When we arrived we were surprised at how awesome it looked. The Indian and pacific oceans meet at this point and the view surrounds you. It is also so windy there !

Today we got up early and checked out before heading to the pier for our 'Mack Attack Paihia' adventure. We were given long coats and life jackets and then loaded onto the boat and strapped in. Most boat tours in Paihia are slow full day trips for wildlife and scenery watching, but Mack Attack was a high speed (up to 100km/ph) alternative - right up our street!
