Big Fish and Beer

Waihau Bay.

Got to Waihau Bay and paid the lady in the pub for my spot on the grass.  Place was full so I had to back in between a big bus and the public toilets.  Parked up and straight over for a beer. Next thing this guy, walking with a stick, well staff more like it and talking with slurred speech asked if he and his mate could join me.  Don’t think it was me it was just there was as shortage of tables.  Anyway turns out this is the Mecca for sport fishing and all the guys, about 5 had all been out in their separate boats and were telling tales of what they had caught, tagged and released.  The place had a funny buzz about it and it turned out on the chatter on the radio, that someone was bringing in a big Bluefin Marlin. The wharf slowly filled up and the beer flowed,  then on the horizon a little black boat coming through the channel.

Early start pulled off the blocks and got underway.  Easy Peasy .  Next stop I am heading for the most Easterlt lighthouse in the world.
