Today marks one week since landing in Opua, NZ. A brief update: it’s cold; it’s beautiful; port engine still down but parts have been ordered (it’s the governor); hikes are amazing; prices are high; found a great mechanic; the marina was expensive and not to our liking so we are out at anchor now off Russell; Alyssa is job-hunting and it’s going well; our friends Brian and Liz are coming to visit us soon!; did we mention how beautiful it is here??
Here are the pictures we have been meaning to upload from the passage. Started with palm trees and ended with grey skies and big seas!
