This is a tendered port which is always fun if the sea is a little choppy. Cloudy sky and moderate wind so the tenders are lively.

We went ashore primarily to see the Waitangi Treaty Grounds. Being a Sunday there were many people not just off the ship but many New Zealanders.

Spent some time looking around then walked into town and returned to the ship. We timed our return during a slack period and didn't have to wait for a tender.

The place where the Treaty was signed in 1840 is universally recognised and is often mentioned as we in Australia attempt to properly recognise the original people of this country.

"Note this is written 2023 and a lot has happened since we were there."

Back to sea for two days until we arrive back in Sydney.
