Bay of Islands

Bay of Islands, originally uploaded by ScenicViews.

Just spent a few enjoyable sunny days in the Bay of Islands and Northland. Took a boat trip and saw some dolphins (though not quite as close as last time) and also many of the islands in the bay. Spent yesterday afternoon kayaking in the bay and across to Waitangi and up the river to the mangroves, drifting along, watching the cormorants and wading birds. Today I went up to Cape Reinga and although the day started with clouds in Paihia, it soon brightened up, with nice views up at the lighthouse.
