I'm just combining these because they were the same day, and are not many pictures. It was a TALK! We learned a lot about what is happening.

White Island is a volcano, sitting out at sea. There is a bit where rare birds nest. I found the volcanic activity around New Zealand a bit off-putting. No wonder they are all migrating to Australia!

And these photos notwithstanding, I detected very few flat spots in NZ.

Richard had his talk in a small lounge just next to the dinner area. It was a bit croowded, but was probably a bit more intimate than the Van Gogh lounge.

And that's all the pictures from the ship. I went on a tour to Rotorua next day. Some went home, some stayed in Auckland.
