Looking down Kenepuru Sound...
...and then Queen Charlotte Sound
.....and on the way out of Queen Charlotte Sound, looking at the land of the long white cloud.
....with the leading lines in transit
Good bye South Island
Quite a different landscape near Rotorua on the way home. Hot sulphur springs that we thought were an odd mist to start with.
After a late night stop on the shores of Lake Taupo, we met a potential 4th crew member, female, Polish, at Tirau before driving on tonWhakamarama to visit a long standing family friend. Then another meeting with another potential crew member, male, New Zealander, followed by supper with Kate and Lane in Aukland and a night it a car park which did not appear to prohibit free camping. Then it was back to Whangarei and the boat and a busy Easter with the boat in the travel hoist and the keel down so we could tackle the rust patches. All to no avail as we discovered later.
