What a day! We had a fantastic play with a pod of a dozen Hector Dolphins, for at least half an hour. They swam under our kayaks, jumped and raced along side. We stopped to eat a biscuit and they waited for us.
We had a good sea and a really good day and 1p.m. saw us having a lunch break at the New Brighton Pier Restaurant. Life is good. We gave the Waimakariri River mouth a wide berth as there was a lot of water racing out of there and paddled on to Waikuku Beach, where we have the use of my sister Robyn's caravan for the night.
