We finally tore ourselves away from beautiful Mimiwhangata, and cruised back to the equally lovely Tutukaka.
Our anchorage of choice is Pacific Bay- it's calm and protected, with an easy dinghy ride to Tutukaka Marina and surrounded by lovely beaches. Having friends nearby is a great bonus.
There are stunning beaches and some great walks within easy reach, and Jim loves pedalling his mountain bike through the surrounding hills. I've been enjoying the sketching opportunities- continuing trying to tackle figure drawing, architecture and mastering the brush pen. It's going pretty well.
In between coffees and relaxation, we're having some amazing day sails. I'll save the pictures for my next post and leave you with the week's worth of sketches of the locals- of both human and green varieties.
