We have safely arrived in Opua New Zealand. It was an adventurous trip. We are cleared into the country with very friendly and efficient officials. A more detailed entry will follow but we wanted to send a quick note that all is well aboard Astarte. We are tired and glad to be here. Astarte took good care of us and now we have to do some caring for her. Lots of friends are here and we were warmly welcomed yesterday. It felt good. We slept solidly last night tied up to a dock at the Opua Marina.
