After a few mandatory morning chores, a dip over the side and a relaxing cockpit luncheon, we weighed anchor and sailed four pleasant miles over a flat sparkling blue sea to another of the numerous islands that, given its name, unsurprisingly abound in the Bay of Islands. A row ashore, another swim off the beach and then dinner in the cockpit concludes another relaxing day.

It is all terribly pleasant but somehow I reckon the need to move on will soon assert itself, otherwise, in the words of Ishmael, the hypos of my soul might start to get the upper hand of me.

All is well
