We are safely back at the boat. We had a long drive yesterday, through all the traffic in Auckland and then up the windy road to Whangarei. The boat weathered our absence just fine. Today we are getting some passport pictures taken so we can renew our visa's (they only give you a 3 month visa when you enter, but they give the boat 6 month, go figure). I will be busy doing boat projects for the next while so unless something wonderful happens you probably won't here from me.
