The plan is to get back to the normal schedule of posting this week, but I might miss a day here or there as I'm playing tour guide this week, and showing a friend from Japan around my corner of the world.
It's quite interesting seeing things from a tourist perspective. Yesterday, we went dolphin watching in the Hauraki Gulf. Check it out!!
Yes, these are from my camera! The water was so clear and a whole pod of dolphins ran along in front of the catamaran for ages. Apparently, they like to surf the waves generated by the boat.
We also saw lots of little blue penguins swimming around (they're so fast!), as well as gannets flying overhead. The view in the Gulf - of the marine life, the islands, the yachts, the sea itself - was amazing. It was such a great day. If anyone's ever down this way, I'd totally recommend doing this!
