Well after waiting a week, the 50 knot winds died down and we were able to once again get off the boat and enjoy the lovely Bay of Islands. Our last stop before departing for Auckland was Urupukapuka Island. Most of the island is a nature preserve and covered in trail heads. In fact it seems like there is a trailhead everywhere in NZ. We spent our final two days hiking and picknicking on the gourgeous spine trails that cover the whole island. Below are photos of the island and plenty of the ongoing seafood fest with our friends from Irie. Oh and the cute sheep,this is New Zealand after all.
