Anchored off Motuihe Island listening to the birds. Very nice. What was not very nice was discovering the gouge in the topsides left by something or someone over the past week. Out with the filler tomorrow! Should be a magnificent day in the gulf and heading back in on Tuesday as one of us has to work! Flat calm at the moment and have the Hauraki cruise ship and a Canadian yacht 'Island Prism' anchored up next door. Hopefully both will be quiet during the night.
