Aside from our trip over to Russell last week we haven't moved from our berth. Outside the wind is now blowing at 50 knots and the weather is nothing short of foul; far better to be in here than out there amongst it. Fortunately a really good weather window seems to be opening up later in the week and so we should have a good ride up to the islands from about Thursday.
Allan and Angus have taken the opportunity to head south to Rotorua and the Waitomo Caves, which has worked out well for us inasmuch as we have been able to get some of the minor longer term tasks achieved which would have left AandA a bit bored. Wet weather s also good for school as well....(thanks to Dave Swannell for keeping an eye on us via the blog!).
Last night we had a cruisers trivia night at the yacht club - very amusing and the kids and parents group came third out of 10!
Anyway, will let you know how we are travelling with the weather and provide an update as to when we are leaving for Tonga.
