This is our third visit to New Zealand and every time we say we are going to Whangaroa . This time we finally made it. It was very pretty and a good place to be weather Cyclone Hola.
Cyclone Hola became a non-event that far north but it was a nice place to finally visit.
|Watch out for collapsing anvils.|
|A romantic Valentines Day.|
|Come on Mum and Dad. Why are you so slow ?|
|Nice view from the top of the hike.|
|After the main hike, Victoria and I tried to find a route to the top of the other nearby peak.|
|A view down to Fluenta at anchor|
|Out with my little helper. There was lots of rain so check out the colour of the water. I decided I did not want to go spearfishing that badly.|
|The rain also made lots of waterfalls. The kids and I later found a route up the base of the waterfall but forgot to bring the camera.|
|Fog ! The first fog we have seen in years. We had the kids on the bow on lookout and Liz on the radar as we approached Whangoroa.|
|And then it cleared once we had the anchor down.|
