Land at last

First stop in the Bay of Islands and disaster strikes. I drown my expensive Canon SLR when a flask of water leaks in my bag and am left with only my iPhone for photography.

Toured Russell and enjoyed a burger lunch overlooking the Bay from the balcony of the local fishing club.

Later visited the Waitangi Treaty Grounds. The Flagstaff marks the spot where the treaty between the Maori and the Crown was signed. Our ship can be seen in the distance anchored in the Bay.

  1. Oh I do hope you are able to save your SLR camera. Did it dry out?

    1. Disco, the camera took well over a week to dry out and would appear completely dead now.
