Bay of Islands Marina, Opua

Our first morning in NZ we woke to a beautiful misty scene, which quickly cleared to a warm sunny day with wonderfully clean, fresh air - perfect for heading out to explore the Bay of Islands at a leisurely pace and enjoy swinging on the anchor again.  
Opua is a great port of entry: with friendly, cheerful marina staff, clean and modern marina toilets/showers and washing facilities, a great store for and a quintessentially 'Kiwi' fish and chips shop nearby.   It is in a very attractive sunny location protected from the winds and seas, with native pohutakawa, manuka, and cabbage trees lining the shore.
