One of the Team NZ America's Cup 33 trial boats - it's super impressive seeing them sailing in and out of the harbour.
The kids always yell out to them, pure NZ kiwi fan club!
Huge thanks to Alan, my step dad who helped us bring Mazuran down the coast, and to mum for the support and being the shore crew. You both have helped us in so many ways, and cannot thank you enough!
My old playground - the Hauraki Gulf! What a great day to welcome Mazuran to the HG!
We have had so many visitors! Every day since we’ve been here we have had friends come aboard - it’s been a blast and we’ve only been here 1 month! I must admit being in the city again is quite motivating; you tend to speed up your ‘time’, plus its great entertainment, and fantastic areas for the kids to run around and scooter. They absolutely love it....
The old tracks along the wharves make great scooter paths

The 'Cloud' - what a funky boat building shed it would be!
The kids have loved the new addition to the Wynyard Quarter - a Tip Top "Pop-Up Parlour". Basically it's a tip top ice cream shop in a shipping container. We happen to watch it being unloaded off the truck (Blake was most excited to see it being unloaded with a hi-ab "just like the one that did our mast" he said. Very observant! But the best was yet to come.. we were the first 'customers' so then got the free-bees. We are now known as the 'regulars'.. and they absolutely love the kids - we have loads of promo stuff on board now! Very exciting for them, and a bonus that the kiddie cones are suitable for us adults too! A perfect dessert in winter!
Mazuran, blending in.....
The Sky Tower looking pretty
