First day in New Zealand and we were off to the races- literally. @mathewreed21 And I were graciously invited to join in on a yacht race through the Bay of Islands!🌴🇳🇿 New Zealand is as gorgeous as ever, this general location had the visual resemblance and combination of Napa green rolling hills in the spring, with Oregon dense forest, and Hawaii blue waters 😍😍 From torrential downpour one minute to sunshine the next, I walked away from the six hour race drenching wet and sunburned, but happily stunned from an experience I won’t forget.
When we reached this island, we headed to the viewing deck following this path to see an overview of the sand bar shaped like a snake. And that's how this island got its name, not because there's a lot of snakes here like what I thought. 😅 Though, I'm not really sure if there's none. 🤔🐍 #MariexAdventures#MariexElNido
