Today we sailed from the Bay of Islands, along the coast to Whangaroa, a natural harbour. Along the way we enjoyed amazing islands and azure seas – magic! And it was good to finally sail on the Pacific Ocean:-) Dolphins played in the bow wave, shearwaters, terns, gannets, Pacific gulls and mollymawks hunted fish in the sea around us.
Rob was very at home in Whangaroa. It’s a very beautiful place with many anchorages to choose from and very protected from the Pacific:-) We chose Pekapeka Bay for our first night here – see the background to Rob in the photo, and the yachts around us.
