Sunrise over Bay of Islands as we sailed into the Bay, followed by a dolphin watch cruise
Spoilt for choice with an outdoor swimming and spas, an indoor pool, again with spas and a glassed in solarium with numerous spas, and drinks and coffee available there was no reason to be stressed
hidden in reeds a black swan sitting on her nest. This would have to be the highlight of the day.
I could only watch in astonishment, the skills it took to ride this man made simulator. The pressure wave sends 30,000 gallons of water up a gentle 40 foot long slope.
The waterfalls were in abundance on both sides of the sheer cliffs of the three sounds, Milford Sound, Doubtful Sound and Dusky Sound
watching the traffic, including a magnificent tall ship on Sydney Harbour, passing below the magnificent Coathanger, Sydney Harbour Bridge and the magnificent sails of the Opera House on Bennelong Point. Standing on the outside deck with our first drinks, waiting for our adventure to begin
who had the most fun at the dodgem car rink, the guys trying to ram each other and chase each other around the ring or the girls watching them from the sidelines.
We saw numerous salt water crocodiles, some extremely close to our cruise runabout. The bird life was prolific with ducks, egrets, eagles, hawks and the most exciting for me was being up close to the jabiru. The birds and the reptiles seemed to be able to live in harmony, or maybe the large “salties” were not hungry
