Went ashore to find the tree from last night – it must have been very old ‘cos it had a massive trunk! And Rob took a beautiful panorama of the view from the top of the ridge.
Went to Hahangarua Bay for lunch, then I washed my hair. This was a major error – the gas-heated hot water system blew up! So Rob turned off the gas and we raced back to Opua. Got there in strong winds but Rob docked the boat really well. “Kiwi” Kim who ran the boat hire came aboard with help, and we had the hot water on again by 7:30. After that we had a quiet night, after nice hot showers ashore.
