Kia ora whanau from the good ship to thy land lubbers……
We are now anchored in Twin lagoon bay at Motuarohia graced by clearing skies and calm seas . It was a slow start out from Opua in the drizzle, trainees coming and going between decks and showers. A hearty lunch and some classroom work before activity above deck.
Opononi got praise for being the first in for a swim followed closely by Bay of Islands College and Huanui. after going for a walk up to the view point, bird identification and collecting shells off the beach, we did all this after it stopped raining.
Trainees are settling in well lots of laughter on board………….
