Here are a few photos on the way to Whangarei...
|But if you turn around, then you get a lovely view of Marsden Point - home of the oil refinery and Northland Port. Not the prettiest view to look at while you're having your morning coffee.|
|Party happening on one of the docks! We waved in the hopes of getting invited over, but they seemed to be ignoring us.|
|Not too sure what happened here. One of the many boats we saw aground. It started to make us wonder exactly how shallow it would get at low tide.|
|There were a number of boat sheds along the way. Some of the boats seemed too big for their sheds.|
|And some more boat sheds.|
|This is Fantail, a very well-known Raven 26 (the type of boat we have), owned by Annie Hill. She has refitted it and it has a junk rig now. Annie moors her boat along the river and she might have thought we were a bit creepy, stalker like people when we slowed down to take pictures. She did come out and wave at us - maybe because she saw that we have a Raven 26 too.|
