This is a sleepy, resort town at the very north part of New Zealand
This was to be our first land stop in about a week!  So, Ralph and Mark were ready for a day in a quaint port.
This town is reminiscent of Cap Cod or Nantucket.
It was a bit chilly on this day, quite a bit cooler than our last stop at Bora Bora.
We had to anchor our ship, and arrive by ship's tender today.
Only about 800 people live in Russell
Many people from Auckland make the 3-hour drive to Russell, as a getaway.
Certainly the best fish and chips anywhere!
The fish, by the way, was caught that morning!  You are served your fish and ships in newsprint.  English-style!
Yes, ladies and gentlement, the CRUSTY CRAB is where you get the best fish and chips in New Zealand.
It was a great, easy day.
A nice place to visit, indeed.
