What I did
For a break we went into town and visited with the dive shop to negotiate the amount of neoprene we would need to be warm diving
From there we drove up to the Waitangi Treaty grounds (the place where the natives signed over the lease of the whole country to the Europeans). On the way in we were surprised by a one-lane, two-way bridge. Fortunately, there was a 2-car wide spot for us to use in the middle for dealing with the fact that you couldn't see the far side from either end. On the Treaty grounds we discovered an incredible view, made even more dizzying by Doedo's new trick of placing the camera on a long stick. We were also surprised to see that most of the place has been converted into a golf course.
We did finally finish our homework and treated ourselves to a ferry ride to Russell and a sunset dinner on the Wharf. http://thewharfrussell.co.nz/
