It’s that time of year again and we must head out of the country or pay GST on Duet ll. So we wait in Opua, ducking out of unfriendly wind and rain waiting for a break in the weather. This picture is not Opua but down in doubtful sound where we cruised during the summer. We have been busy getting ready and doing as many of the modifications to Duet ll as we can. Just as we think we are ready, there is always something else to do. In the meantime we have had the opportunity to take some good bird photographs.
