... well. It's colours, form and gleaming glass lend a very pleasant aspect to the hillside. We sat on the fence that runs between the lighthouse and the plant-clad bluff that falls away into the water. We kept our eyes peeled for the distinctive rounded dorsal fin of Hector's dolphins, the world's smallest dolphin species, which is resident in this area. However, this dolphin is very rare and doesn't often venture close to the village, so we had to satisfy ourselves with ...

From Rotorua, we said farewell to Jane and Aisha who swiftly worked their way southward on another 8 days of non-stop adventure.

... ears we may have had some creme brule or semifredo... alas all good things get full :) A few nights later we were able to spend some time drinking wines and chatting with the owner Emma and the manager Lou. Oh and don't worry, you don't have to be so jealous of the amazing food we had from The Little Bistro, we are coming back with a cookbook featuring some of the recipe's from the restaurant :)

Our last act in town before ...
