Greetings from thy good ship to thy land lubbers….. ohhh what a grand day it has been our day started with our morning mineral spa with Zahyne taking the plunge 1st followed by the rest of the horde then promptly followed the completion of chores and a hearty breakfast fit for kings….. Weighing anchor while the dishes where being done we set our course for the beach at Mimiwhangata, on our way there we completed some lessons which consisted of weather, tides and bio security. Upon arrival to the beach we all gazed at the hill where we would asend to the lookout that overlooks 3 pa called Te Rearea, Taraputa and Kaituna and out to the horizon where Tawhiti Rahi and Aorangi rest, the calves burned but was well worth the hike to see such beauty our land holds…. Once recovered we walked down to the beach opposite Rimariki to have lunch in the sheltered bay before returning to the ship… We are now anchored in Whangaruru sheltered behind Motukauri the ship is vibrant with laughter and singing 
Po marie whanau…
