With an overnight stop in Whangamumu Bay, we took two leisurely days to sail from Bay of Islands to the Whangarei area.

Upon our arrival to Parua Bay, we were greeted by dear family friends who have been living in New Zealand.  We were able to anchor near their home, and they took us in for dinner during our first night there.  In addition to spending the next couple of days getting reaquainted with our friends, we also got to enjoy the amenities of a real house.  Long, hot showers and a clothes washer!
