Tendered to Waitangi (Hobson Point) (a 20 minute tender). We took an early tender and made a preliminary stop at the Bay of Islands Yacht Club. We had a coffee and homemade date square and Peter had his first Mah Jong lesson. He is a 'natural'. He will be taking more lessons when we get back to Vancouver.
Met our friend Chris for lunch. His partner Michael was away in Christchurch, on business.
We had a great visit and catching up since we last saw each other in 2008.
Chris hosted us to a fabulous private lunch at the Paihia Beach Resort and Spa Hotel, in Paihia, NZ. It was phenomenal. Champagne, great wine and a wonderful private luncheon provided by the Hotel Chef, who is a friend of Chris and Michael.
