As part of my recovery process I decided to have a bit of Rest & Recuperation, and what better place than on a boat, one that is alongside and not going anywhere of course. Luckily enough my brother and his wife just happen to be on the South coast, not far from home. This is Kapowai, their home from home.

Kapowai

After the hello’s I checked into my forward cabin and then to the back deck for afternoon G&T, it’s a stunning boat with plenty of room onboard, sleeps 10 and never runs out of ice, although the Gin can sometimes be hard to find. After a long night of catchup and story’s of the crossing from the USA it was bed.

The next day was another late summers day, cool breeze but lots of sun, we decided to take the tender up the river and find a nice pub for lunch.

The trip up the river was great with some interesting sights.

Some that didn’t make it.

Wreck

Small ferry, that can’t be missed.

And a lot of very nice homes.

And finally our destination, we were told this pub had great beer and excellent food, they weren’t wrong.

Jolly Sailor

And even some words of wisdom.

All in all a great couple of days. You can check out my brothers blog here.
