It looks beautiful. Your photos prompted me to do a bit of research on the internet and it looks like an amazing place. We went to North Island last year and whilst it was very nice, I have yet to be convinced that NZ offers anything that can't be found in the Northern hemisphere (where, of course, the flights would be shorter and cheaper). We didn't see much of the place as we were there for unfortunate family circumstances though, so I'm open to persuasion!

P.S. Congratulations, btw!

Believe me when I tell you that it really is very different! If you make it to the Sports Boat show I'll see you then .............. of course it depends on what you want from a holiday, it no more suits everyone than Mauritius does!

Spitfire last weekend, just passing to the west of Cloch Point, in the capable hands of Colonel Gardner.

Note the bag of jelly babies, essential equipment on any RIB trip!
