Ahhh, well, no. At Tonga yes. Tonga Island, where seals live, is right in front of us. One seal greated us as we arrived. Underway today we saw 2 whales: a fin of one just behind the boat and a couple of huge blows far away.
So where are we? Tonga Island in Golden Bay, South Island New Zealand. We sucessfully crossed the cooks strait. Ah, for my dear friend Mary: we sailed the Tasman Sea down on the westcoast of the northern island wirh the SPINNAKER up for one day. Then we had to take it down because of no wind, meaning we motored for one more day. Only crossing of Cooks Strait did we have wind and wave- where nothing was predicted.
Pictures follow soon.
