We are back in the US and heading home!
We are at the airport checking in. We have a flight to Vancouver Canada (13hr) then into LAX. Please pray for safe and easy travels. Thanks!
We spent the day in the Bay of Islands at Paihia in the north where the South Pacific Ocean is. We took a boat through the 144 little islands, spent time with a couple pods of dolphins and shipped through a hole in a rock island. Tonight is our last night in New Zealand… we will be flying out of Aukland tomorrow. Please pray for our last 24 hours in NZ as we do our packing, take one last adventure in the morning and prepare to leave.
Thanks! A + M
Photos below are of Cathedral Cove. You may recognize the arch and beach from Prince Caspian, it’s the scene when the kids return to Narnia and Lucy runs into the ocean in her dress. The beach was really beautiful! We didn’t plan to swim but when we got to the beach we had to run in. Last night we drove from Whitianga. to Whangarei stopping at Cathedral Cove and Hot Water Beach where during low tide you can dig a hole in the sand and it fills with hot water. In some places the sand is too hot and both Matt and I gave our feet a little scorching on accident. The water also fluctuated from hot to cold very quickly so we didn’t even attempt to dig our own little hole among the masses.
