4 day trip to Mayor Island

19 April 2011

We had a lazy morning and set out about 9am with the intention of sailing around the island and coming back to Southeast Bay for the night. But when we left the bay the water was so clear and the sea so calm we decided to work our way up the coast and visit each bay, what a wonderful way to spend the morning, we anchored in a small bay with an island in it and then go the dingy off and went off to explore the area, just stunning cliffs that were interlaced with obsidian glistening in the sunlight.

John was back in the water making up for the years he had missed out on, in not snorkelling before.
