      ... the Bay of Islands has to offer and still drop off supplies today. We boarded the boat at 9:30 under sunny blue skies, a little wind and temperatures near 20 degrees.This started our adventure from the dock in Paihia that lasted some seven hours. We visited a number of the 144 islands on the tour each seeming to be uniquely different. Very early on the trip we came across a pod of almost 30 Bottle Nose Dolphins. For close to a ...

      ... look after birds that have been injured, we all got to pet a kiwi which is a native bird hence the nickname for New Zealanders, funny looking thing hopping around on two legs with no wings.

      On the way back we called in to the town of Russell which was where we had our first beers in New Zealand. Amy and I ordered good ole Corona's and Nick got a Tui... which was the smarter beer to order considering we can get Corona's anywhere in Australia :/
