More of Paradise Bay

Lainey and Tim (my daughter and her fiancé) were enjoying life at sea and the boating experience so much that they decided they would like to spend 1 more night aboard before returning to our Bay of Islands anchorage and explore New Zealand by land. Jordan and I were both surprised by how much Lainey and Tim loved sailing and our lifestyle!

Still at Paradise Bay of Urupukapuka Island, we went ashore to stroll the white sandy beach. We had a riot on the tree swings hanging from monstrous trees with huge root systems and then hiked to the top of the hill through the forest with all of its delicate fern trees.

After a great hike and a great day, we returned to Sea Turtle to spend our last evening lazing aboard in the setting sun with cold cocktails. Tomorrow will be travelling on land for a quick tour of northern New Zealand before the kids catch their next flight.

Sea Turtle faithfully waits
