  1. Thanks for all your kind words and l am very happy to see the voyage continue under Izzy’s direction.
  2. Yes we have a movie version and love the noise and flowing water. Loved this area of Brisbane.
  3. Thank you for taking on continuing the cruise. I think that would be a great area to be at tomorrow.
  4. Today we arrive in Brisbane, tomorrow.......well tomorrow I fly home. I have visited Cairns on a precruise trip and snorkled for the first time on my fiftieth birthday on the Great Barrier Reef. However I have never been to Asia, southern Africa or southern South America. If anyone would like to continue the voyage please do so. I thank all the contributors and have loved seeing all the photos. I wish everyone happy cruising in the near future.
  5. Lovely to see some of the other areas of Sydney. Brings back lovely memories.
  6. Today Sydney. Tomorrow we are in Brisbane. I'm sure there will be a lot of photos of Sydney so I will post just a few. Sydney Bridge Opera House Bondi Beach Manly Beach Sydney Tower Circular Quay Ferry Blue Mountains
  7. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dunedin_Railways It has two lines, one to the gorge and one along the coast but it does not connect further.
  8. You definitely had better weather than us.
  9. At sea in Fiordland today. Tomorrow we arrive at Sydney. It was a very dull misty day when we viited the fiords and made for a very eerie sail. At the end of Milford Soun,d after we had disaembarked the people leaving fo the overland trip, the ship just turned on its axis and sailed out.
  10. Dunedin today. At sea in Fiordland, New Zealand tomorrow.
  11. Seems perfectly reasonable as Akaroa was often a replacement port after the earthquake, a lovely set of photos.
  12. Yes we have been in the Yacht Club and the prices seem very high to us.
  13. We have arrived at Lyttlelton for Christchurch, tomorrow we dock at Dunedin. We visited Christchurch before the earthquake in 2011.
  14. Arrived in Wellington, tomorrow Christchurch.
  15. And here are some other pictures around town
  16. Today we are in Napier, tomorrow Wellington. Napier was destroyed by an earthquake in 1931 and was rebuilt in the Art Deco style and has some very lovely buildings.
  17. In box at top https://www.pocruises.com/new-winter-collection
  18. There is a very pleasant walk along the seafron at Papeete and you can see Moorea in the distance but we never made it to the island.
  19. Some photos from Papeete. The road to the waterfall was closed when we visited. La Maison James Norman Hall Arahoho Blowhole and coast Point Venus where Cook observed the transit of Venus in 1769
  20. Bora Bora and Papeete.Tomorrow we are in Napier, New Zealand. It was a grey day when we arrived at Bora Bora and we visited the shallow waters to snorkel with the fish and coral. I stayed in the boat when they swam with the rays and the black tipped sharks. Then when we travelled to the motu for lunch the heavens opened and it poured down and we shivered. However it cleared and we spent an enjoyable afternoon on the island walking and swimming.
  21. Sorry for the confusion, my error. Did just mean Bora Bora but as I also have photos of Papeete, Tahiti let’s cover both. See you tomorrow.
  22. We are at the equator. Tendering tomorrow at Bora Bora, Tahiti.
  23. Honolulu today. Crossing the Equator tomorrow. We did a tour of the island.
  24. Glad to see the inside photos of the QM1 which we had taken pics from the other bank.
