*NZ bird watching post coming up soon -- this one mostly focuses on the other "natives"
|Yacht-ertainment - this boat was well and thoroughly stuck|
in shallow Otehei Bay.
|Testosterone-based assistance overcame the urge|
to kick back at Otehei Bay.
|Movement! We were impressed with these can-do Kiwis.|
|Seagulls were quick to clear food left behind at a cafe table.|
Otehei Bay Urupukapuka, Bay of Islands, New Zealand.
Regardless, Otehei is a great place to while away an afternoon chilling out in the sunshine or learning about Urupukupuka's history and wildlife conservation efforts.
This is a recent retrospective of our time on New Zealand's Urupukapuka island, December 29-30, 2015 (S35.13.076 E174.13.707). Urupukapuka is part of New Zealand's Bay of Islands.
While in 2015 we sailed over 10,000 miles from Florida to New Zealand, since arriving here November 21, 2015, we're quite happy we've sailed about 150 miles -- most of it, motoring (;(). We're resume longer passages after cycle season ends in May, and will happily explore New Zealand overland or in short hops until then.
