Welcome to the Maunie of Ardwall blog

This is the blog of Maunie of Ardwall charting our adventures as we sail around the world. The boat is now on the east coast of Australia while we spend a summer back in Britain.

Cruising the Northland Coast

We've just left Whangarie, a large (ish) city south of Opua and north of Auckland where the river meanders up almost ten miles from the sea to deliver you into a very nice marina right in the hear of town. We've had a fairly frenetic couple of days taking full advantage of the great shops and local services.
 
We're now heading back towards Opua where we'll be for a week or so for our haul-out. Some photos to follow when we get back there and we hope that our newly-fettled pc will be good for more reliable Skype calls now it has had extra memory installed; we look forwards to chatting to friends and family.
 
The coastline is spectacular and even the Marsden Point oil refinery looked strangely pretty in the sunset last night.
