Sailing


The last day at the Bay of Islands we spent sailing and looking at dolphins. I had not intended to do this, as we were on a budget , but the water looked beautiful and the thought of sailing was enticing. So what the heck we did and we are glad we did. We went with a company called Sailing & Dolphins and the catamaran was called Carino NZ and was skippered by a woman ( Yay!)We did get a bit of drizzle but we had a wonderful day and we did see dolphins! The beach paraphernalia was from the small beach at Robertson Island, which was the place where Captain Cook landed in New Zealand however the whole region had already been settled by Maori, who were great seafarers.

Today I have to myself apart from having to go into town for banking and posting- what shall I do...........

Looks beautiful there! Sounds like it was worth it to take the sail.

Sometimes budgets just have to be busted -- the experience is far more important. Your dolphin pics are gorgeous! Even the discarded bottle cap is beautiful. :-)

So glad you got to sail, Dijanne. I particularly like the light seafoam and light gray colors in the photo mosaic above. Thanks!

You have finally given me a reason to get a passport and rob a bank to finance foreign travel.

These pictures are how I imagine heaven to be so I try to be a good human being on the off chance I can get in.

thanks!
