Another quiet, though pleasant day in the cruising life. We went for a walk along the foreshore of North Cove and up a small estuary which dries out at low tide. We saw numerous very nice Bachs, including one with a largish jetty with a helicopter pad marked out on it. After a brief chat with Roger off "Viviacious" (another yacht planning to join the rally next year) we returned onboard and got into school.

Later in the afternoon we motored around to Smelting House Cove in Bon Accord Harbour, where we went ashore for a brief wander and stopped at the Kawau Is yacht club for a quick drink. With the wind getting up we elected to move around to Mansion House Bay, one of our favorite spots. The weather for tomorrow looks good for a visit to Tiri Tiri Matangi Island, where we will probably stop tomorrow night as well. Back to GH on Wednesday for scouts.
