Where I stayed
Strawberry Fields B&B
We made through Auckland all right and were fine through (Whageua) visting the docklands, the cafes, and a spectacular waterfall. Pictures are a side view only as we didn't try the 535 steps down to the bottom (about 300 feet).
Just as we turned off the main highway heading into the Bay of Islands we encountered our first heart attack
We stayed at the Strawberry Fields B&B in Paihai and took a ferry ride over to Russell (the first European capital in NZ). We thought Canada's history was short, trees planted by the first settlers were planted in the 1830's.
We booked a half-day boat ride around the Bay of Islands to see the Hole in the Rock and (guaranteed) dolphins. It's raining now (really the first we've had, the other rain in Rarotongo was at night). We'll let you know.
