SUNDAY, FEB. 15: WAITANGI, BAY OF ISLANDS, NEW ZEALAND

1. Today was cloudy and drizzly, and cooler than the local weather has been (maybe 65 degrees). Perfect for sea kayaking.
2. We paddled our way through the Waitangi Estuary to Haruru Falls (which means “roar” in the Maori tongue).
3. Paddling through the mangrove trees, the life blood of the estuary and a favorite breeding ground for fish. We were back on the Serenity by 1:30pm and the Sunday service was in the late afternoon once again – Ed still managed to play the guitar – we expect sore arms tomorrow, though!
4 & 5. What a treat! Dolphins played alongside the ship as we left the Bay of Islands.
