Grey bumpy seas turn into grey bumpy hills below grey bumpy clouds...

We got here. I can't quite believe it.

The last day we had some rough seas and rain showers, we scooted along under storm jib and reefed mizzen, but by the time we'd reached the entrance to the Bay of Islands the front passed by and visibility returned and there it was: New Zealand.

You know when you did holes when you're a kid? Ok, well, perhaps you didn't, but when I dug holes when I was a kid if I'd kept going long enough it would have been New Zealand that I would have popped out in. We're truly the other side of the world.
