Paihia, Bay of Islands

After a 10 hour sleep we had a lazy morning - just a walk down the road with Roy and Heather - Wonderful views.
After lunch Heather too us down to the harbour so we could get on our boat for a trip around the islands.  We set sail at 1:30pm and travelled all around the bay.  Unfortunately, we were unable to go through the 'Hole in the Rock' because of the heavy swell.  We didn't see any dolphins or whales either so we received a voucher for another trip anytime we want to go.  The oldest voucher they have redeemed was 14 years old!!  However, we did have a wonderful afternoon.  We landed on one island and were given a guided tour by a Maori who was on board with us.  I'll let the pictures tell the story.
