Christmas in the Bay of Islands and a bit of Child Labour

Christmas was a bit warmer this year as we decided to stay in New Zealand rather than fly back to Canada.  Not quiet as warm as our previous Christmas in Mexico though.

Nirvana picked a beautiful anchorage for our herd of kid boats to anchor.  It was great fun having friends new and old sharing the anchorage with us.

Christmas Dinner
Santa found us


okay, you are not supposed to wrap your brother for Christmas ...

Boxing Day party.  Not a lot of tobogganing ...
Making gingerbread houses on SV Honey.

The scenery on my paddle board circuit

I'm sure I'll fit ...

Things get busier in the anchorage.

Not a great photo but the dark shape is a dolphin swimming around me.

Boat projects never stop.  Johnathan installing a nicer sheave to reduce friction.

The kids installing grommets in our new RHIB seat bag.

Wiring.  Victoria fits better than me ...

and of course, Benjamin is a big help ..

The end.
