Hard to describe. But when you live a nomad sailing life, your boat is your house and everything becomes serious in a way.
There is a couple here in Whitianga, Craig and Verena they run a small company that takes care of boats. But they have a sailboat themselves just next to us in the marina.
Craig described Mercury island with so many loving words so we decided to let go and just sail for fun to the island.
We left friday afternoon as soon as the kids got back from school. And what a weekend!
It was such a treat to be able to swim from the boat and the whole place was like a dream. Enjoy the pictures!
By the way scallops just from the sea... what a treat!

Full moon in  Motutaika Point         Now what are they doing? well Craig have maid a dinghy that has a glass window so you can look into the water

Graig and Verena They took our kids for an excursion and we could take a nap!

Nature on Mercury is like something coming out os a fairy tail
