After seeing Camilla and Patrick off, I met up with my friend Jo, who  recently moved into a brand new designer home in Auckland.  I am so impressed with many of my friends' living arrangements, they live in such style!

After a short visit, in which Jo helped me plan my north island jaunt, I flew off to KeriKeri, or The Bay of Islands, and here I am now, enjoying this beautiful country.

More to follow, for now find some photos taken in Russell, the very first town New Zealand town.  Because of its northern-most point, Russell was first port of call to navigators like Captain Cook!  So they have a great town museum with a replica of his ship The Discovery,  lots of whale bone, fishing paraphernalia.  It's a history buff's, as well as sailor's, paradise here.  I think of how many of my friends and family would love the New Zealand I have seen so far.  Absolutely gorgeous.  More to follow.
