Our New Life

17 August 2010 | Riverhead, New Zealand
Stephen and I sold LONG WHITE CLOUD on the same day as we purchased one of New Zealand oldest taverns. 'The Riverhead' sits on the upper reaches of the Waitemata Harbour (which is the harbour our largest city, Auckland also shares). We are undertaking a massive redevlopment of the histroric place and hope to bring her back to her former glory. If you are interested in seeing our progress and keeping in touch with us (we would of course love to see you again) check out our facebook page 'The Riverhead'. If you are in Auckland the unique thing about The Riverhead is that it has it's own dock and is Auckland's only riverside tavern. So you might be able to visit by sea. Check out the tides before you come up though because it is tidal.

27 December 2009 | Rachel & Stans Place, Helensville
Christmas as it should be. Surrounded by family both old and young, superb fresh food, lots of stunning wine and presents galore. We're glad we are home to share it with the ones we love.

Sorry......We've been rather slack since getting back home. Already our focus has moved from cruising and we're looking at what our next adventure will be here on land. Things are moving fast, we've been extremely busy sorting out our next move and we may have some news of what that might be this side of Christmas....watch this space!!

'Having carefully inspected the vessel and her equipment, it is the opinion of this surveyor that this vessel, built to a proven design, with the best quality materials and to the highest standards is a fine example of the boat builders art.
