At Pier 21 in Auckland for a few weeks. Will bypass the Pacific this winter now, and stooge around the hauraki gulf and northland coastline instead and explore our own country. Will head up to the islands next season. Still cruising and not working- so not a bad plan b. Except that the swimming gear is being packed away.

The jobs are finished at home, the list of jobs on Nonstop completed and waterline lowered after a visit to PacNSave and 5 months of grub. We finally have a great window to head north. Yeehaa.

Will be leaving Waikawa on Thursday morning, and heading up the East Coast. Most likely we will stop at Great Barrier for a few days as we go past (and let some pretty average weather go past early next week). Then through to Auckland, where we will clear out from in early July.
