We were blessed with good weather in the days right after ADAGIO made landfall in New Zealand. We wanted to show Andrew and Ian around the Bay of Islands a bit, so one of our first adventures was to anchor in Urupukapuka Bay then spend the day walking all over Urupukapuka Island. We still didn’t make every one of the Pa sites. We’ll visit those when the Weindorfs visit around Christmas time.
By New Years we expect the pohutukawa trees to be blazing red all around the island.
