Last Full day
Yes, we had sunshine clear skies to start our day out and about. The swims involve times of waking then laughter. Michael fulfilled his goal of first in the water thanks to Lucia waking him πŸ™‚
Chores done and classroom cleared, sandwiches made we all piled into the tender for the short trip into the beach to take on the best of Urupukapuka. A leisurely stroll along the trail with Tieke in attendance, along another beach, back into the regenerating forest and meeting Adrian from DoC checking on tracking pads , hunting down a Norway rat which has arrived on the island. Then the steady climb out to the coast with extreme views over the Pacific Ocean. All regrouped for lunch on the hill then down to the beach for a swing under a pohutukawa and back to the ship.
The afternoon slipped by with swims, swings, knots and talk of tomorrow.
We have had a fantastic week, the Tucker again has shown another side to life and all aboard have seized the opportunities of each day.
See you all at 2pm tomorrowIMG_2262
