New Zealand is first on the rota of New Year's Eve celebrations and we did it in style here in Waiheke. A fab lunch at the Te Motu winery with Trish and Ian as a celebration of Dianne's birthday followed by a brilliant night aboard Sel Citron, hosted by Kerry and Damian, with Lionel and Irene from Kiapa.
We're anchored in Man o' War Bay on the east side of Waiheke with probably 50 other boats but everyone has been pretty sensible about leaving enough space between themselves and their neighbours so, when the wind shifted from northerly to south westerly in the night (accompanied by some heavy rain) there were no dramas.
So, Happy New Year to you! Hope that you have a wonderful year.
