Title: Diving NZ Poor Knights /photos

The solar panel arch is now fitted with everything attached to it that we can think of, theres just the life lines to be remade, which seem to be a bit troublesome for someone. The delay gives us spare time to do a bit more exploring, this time underwater.  
Poor Knights Island Marine Reserve was established in 1981and is rated as one of the world's top10 dive sites. Its about a 20 min drive to Tutukaka and 1hrs boat ride from there to the islands, to close to miss on a lovely sunny Sunday.
We haven't dived for over a year, and that was in tropical waters, so wrestling into 7mm wetsuits with over vest and hoods took a while but was worth it. . .
