A fabulous flight over the Bay of Islands

A couple of weeks ago while up working in the north at Kaikohe, Dave decided to give me a bit of a surprise. He thought he would start giving me a few surprises as I head periously close to 60 years of age! I think he thinks it is time I starting looking at the bucket list! Well what a fabulous surprise, it was a flight in a helicopter over the Bay of Islands. I flew over the crystal clear waters of the beautiful Bay of Islands. There are over 100 islands in this area. We flew past the ‘Hole in the Rock’ and circled around the area seeing the townships of Russell, Pahia and Waitangi. Here are a few photos of the amazing adventure!!!!
The colour of the water was extraordinary, all shades of blues and greens!

Guess who is in the front!

Just coming into land at Pahia. Quite wonderful!
