Tui Gets an Inside Tidy
What else to do on a beautiful morning than do some fall cleaning. Christina and Kirby were getting a little 'interior' fever.
A morning of sunshine made cleaning Tui up a pleasant event. With this being Tui's last adventure, it was time to take inventory and see what we had swept under the carpet.
High in the North at Paihia, it was time to take to the waters. We took a beautiful kayak through the pristine waters of the Bay of Islands. It would take a bit of training for us to make any speed records so we enjoyed some time away from the land at a nice relaxing pace. We paddled out to nearby Tore Tore island to explore and hike.
Later we took a short ferry ride across to the town of Russell, a town holding much of New Zealand's early history. We splurged for a dinner at its oldest hotel, the Duke of Marlborough Hotel. We enjoyed some fresh fish and steak, as well as great service and amazing views as the sun set over the bay.
