As it came time to leave Whanarua Bay, we were both feeling a little flat. It is always so hard to leave this heaven on earth! Stopping at the dairy in Tirohanga for one of their legendary ice creams softened the blow somewhat.
This was our first time back in town for a while and certainly since NZ jumped up to Level 2 Covid. We had felt very safe from all things Covid up the bay. But it was time to get out and about again and jump back into our housesitting lifestyle. We would be stopping in Whakatane for 10 days to stay with our number one springer spaniel, Max ......
And his lovely sister, Ruby ....
We arrived in town a day earlier than planned as James had been offered a day out on a fishing charter. Well, that was a no brainer!!

A discussion about who should
do what if they catch one!
