The wind stopped blowing for us at about 700 hr this morning which means our arrial in whangarei will  be delay for a few hours . Further delay just by negotiating a large school of whales and their young as they headed south and our paths crossed . They didn't seem to notice us but we slowed and kept  clear of their track; after all this is their country here.
Expect to be ready for customs by 080 tomomorrow and then catch to tide up rier to Whangarei , We hae eaten well this morning with a pineapple then cooked breakfast. Roast lamb for supper. We hae seeral pineapples and a watermelon to finish . Quarenteen with  confiscate any imported food/.Plenty to replace it all with in town when we get there
