Thank you Bob for another great reflection of your experience of the Mayor Island walk.

It’s a Devilish Little Walk!

The sun on our faces
We bask on the boat
Mayor Island behind us
No need for a coat

Sinuous dolphins
Surf at the bow…
Eyes closed, reflecting…,
Remembering how…

The bush was alive
With movement and song
Inquisitive robins
There… and then gone!

Obsidian black
As sharp as a knife
Guarding the lakes
Treasure and life

Our route took a turn
Half hour too late
A climb to the Trig
The boat had to wait

Tui and bellbirds
Pigeons and peace
Down to the beach
Our wanderings cease

“SeaTrek” still waiting,
All boarded, all done,
Reluctantly leaving
The bay, it was fun!
