Nothing better than a herbal cup of tea before heading out to be a tourist. These are neat Lemon Ginger tea bags with cute labels. Already had one which said Tea me up Scotty lol.
Went to Waitangi so the youngsters could do the full cultural experience which we had done before, so we wandered around the grounds.
Waka boat which holds 82 so rather impressive.
Interesting carvings lol
Where the Waka gets launched every year.
Flagpole marks where the Treaty was signed. Treaty_of_Waitangi

Back home to where we are staying. Club Paihia link
Balcony outside our bedroom.
View from balcony to RSA (same as RSL in oz) where we had a great meal and a little red wine ☺
Next day we headed up to this walk, called St Pauls cathedral. The boy was supposed to be scuba diving, but was unable and Missy was going skydiving but the weather was not good so also cancelled. We had to go pick up the boy so did this walk. I only went halfway and came back to take snaps instead of snapping my knees lol.
Here they are coming back
The man got a little bit hot lol.
In the afternoon they decided to go on the fast boat through the hole in the rock. .mackattack.co.nz/
Heading down the ramp.
Was only them which is not normally allowed so very lucky them.
Off the go and they had a lot of fun.
Next morning decided to go to Russell and Missy got to go skydiving which she has the pic's of at 19,000 feet, very brave girl. Russell
Off on the Ferry away from Paihia.
An island me and Missy thought about swimming to but very rocky edges lol.
Coming close to Russell.
Headed up a very steep road to Flagstaff hill.
Well worth the climb for the view down to Russell.
View of Piahia
Morton Bay fig tree planted in 1800's
Pompaliar house where they printed bibles in Maori
Cute garden shed with a path up to another viewing spot. My legs and knees have had quite a workout lol.
View from the path we climbed.
A bit of a beach walk before heading back to Piahia
Not much in the way of sand but lots of pebbles instead.
We now head off for Auckland tomorrow for a week there so thank you again for visiting and also comments left. Little Internet usage but at least able to post a few times.
