Daytrip to Waiheke

I hadn’t seen my brother for over a year so needless to say when he and his family arrived in Auckland a few days ago we were very excited to see them! Little Felix was two when we last saw him … The boys were very happy to be reunited with their little cousin and couldn’t wait to show him all their new Christmas toys. After a relaxing day by the pool at their friends’ house in Remuera, we all hopped on Rehua yesterday and sailed to Waiheke island for the day. It was a sunny and breezy day and after a couple of hours we arrived in Oneroa bay. Two dinghy trips to get everyone ashore and off we went for a delicious lunch at the Oyster Inn. After lunch, back to the boat and a few of us were brave enough for a splash and a swim and then it was time to head back to base. The beautiful Auckland skyline was being lit up as we headed back into Orakei marina. What a lovely day!
