We waved a sad goodbye to James and Katherine who left us yesterday to start their journey home. It has been great to have them on board with us as we've explored some of Northland's beautiful coast.
The first leg of their journey was a prop plane ride from Great Barrier Island to Auckland. The strong easterly winds were abating as they flew. Katherine got a seat next to the pilot and sent an aerial photo back to us- Tintin is the smudge in the V shaped bay below the nose of the plane.
