Late Summer Trip March 2007: Great Mercury Bay

Motor-sailed across to Great Mercury Island, not much wind and on the nose most of the way. Nice sunset and moonrise, the Spirit tacking in the distance. Diving the next day and a walk ashore at Peachgrove up to the waterhole. Great weather, lovely day, crystal clear water. Had a dive the next day at Tamewhera point, good dive, rays, kingfish, sand eels and morays etc. Back at the anchorage and we look behind us and there is the Spirit, I don’t think we’ve managed a trip away without bumping into the Spirit! JR, Nigel and Neil come to say hello. Sailed round to Peachgrove in the evening which is the bay in the photo.
