Road Trip part 2….

Of course it rained,in summer, while we were on holiday heading to the Bay of Islands! At least we were on a “travel day”. Hubby was keen to go on the 10 min car ferry between Opua & Russell as a way to see Russell (the place not a person, in case you’re confused haha) As it was raining we didn’t bother actually getting out of the car but it was a good way to pass an hour or so…

We stayed in Kerikeri for 2 nights. A 4* motel with a warm pool…awesome! We booked a cruise to see the Hole In The Rock & hopefully a few dolphins. And we were spoilt! 10% off the price, TWO pods of dolphins, 1 BREACHING whale & actually sailing through the Hole in the Rock! Of course, being on a boat full of tourists had it’s drawbacks…read people with cameras ( I don’t know what happens but all of a sudden it’s pushing & shoving so they can get what they want with no regard for anyone else. An elderly man tried his best to literally push my mother out of the way, luckily she is well traveled & knew what to expect before he could finish his “maneuver, needless to say he was unsuccessful. One woman sitting near to us got smacked pretty hard on the shoulder by one man ‘coz she was “in his way & he couldn’t get a photo”!! A total disgrace to the human race really.) Other than that, it was a pleasant trip, the boys were well behaved & Master 2 even fall asleep on the way back.
