Wendy, belated welcome back! I had a preview of a few that Chuck posted on Facebook, wow- sounds like a great adventure.

Look forward to seeing more- I meant to continue you and Dan's excellent adventure- not sure what happened, but think it had something to do with work/ Tiki Ari, and a quick trip out of town- oops!

I have to say, at first I thought this was certainly an odd name of a play... and maybe they spelled this differently down under...????



What? Inappropriate?

Treg, hopefully you bring Wendy's mug back on Monday to the Bali Hai since I was out of town for the last SD Ohana meet up!

lunavideogames thank you for posting the link to zerostreets kickstarter project. This should be a really fun one in which to participate.

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/strangewise/strangewise-no-9-pulp-stories-and-art


zerostreet you are welcome. I wouldn't want anyone the chance to order all these fun things.


TikiAno so you think that the name of the hotel should replace Men on the bathrooms? Cute!

I hope he does bring the octopus. I love a photo that shows that it is in the Bali Hai.

Danno that it was. I hope to show my impression of each place we visited.

=======================================
Thank you all for taking a look at the photos of another Polynesian Paddy and danlovestikis cruise.

We have arrived.


Our first view of New Zealand.


We took the tender boat to shore to begin our adventure.


Polynesian Paddy went on a different tour where he paddled a war canoe.


They climbed aboard and began the journey up a river.


The highlight was a waterfall.


He had a good time.


Dan and I chose to go inland to see first a small forest of giant trees. This is what New Zealand looked like before it was mowed down by sheep ranches. My great-grandfather did this in Ione California way before I was born.
























The trees were not as large as the California redwoods but the were fun to see and to hug.


Back on the bus we headed to a small town.


We stopped for a bathroom break. The tour guide said it was special and


he was right.


Then back on the street we had 20 minutes to do a search for tikis.


Dan spotted this one in a hair salon.



I saw these in the window of a closed store. Eric October used to make stuffed tikis.


In a thrift store we saw this plant holder. Oh no time to go.


Next it was on to the Glow Worm caves.


No photos allowed. They take you inside and water drips on your head. Once you are deep in the cave they turn out the lanterns and you are in total darkness. Then you look up and see the ceiling of the cave lit up by the little worms. It looks like stars.


Back out of the cave was a fun but slightly dangerous hike through huge rocks back to the bus.





Back on the ship we went to the glass show. The coconut palm was cool and out to see.

cy it was very cold on the ship when in Australia and at sea. Dan brought it and I took it over. I wore it part of every day. Thank you.

hang10tiki no, we brought home almost nothing from this trip. At the end I'll post our souvenirs.

LoriLovesTiki thank you Lori, that makes the work worth it.

WooHooWahine you are the worlds best travel agent. It all went very smoothly. Thank you so much.

Holler Waller also very enlightening.

===============================

One more port to visit in New Zealand. This time it's at the city of Auckland.


In 2013 we took a jet boat ride along the Rogue River in Oregon with my sisters family. The ride was beautiful and fun. Once in awhile we spun out and had a little thrill. So we signed up for the jet boat in Auckland.




From the ship we could see the dock where we would get on the boat. I wondered where the river was at the port.


Here we are after the ride. No cameras or purses etc. allowed on the jet boat.


The reason. We went 100 miles an hour on the ocean. It was freezing and the water hit us like small pebbles. I found it fun. Dan hated it very much.



After we went back to the ship and changed into dry clothes we were off to the Auckland Museum.


I missed getting the front. This is the way to the back door.


Inside there were the usual exhibits but we were on the search for Maori culture.


Found it!!!























Once back in the port area we went looking for art. Very little to be found and everything is super expensive.


I bought a couple of shot glasses and then


it was time to board our ship and to head to Tahiti.


French Polynesia here were come!

WooHooWahine I like speed. Dan likes relaxing. I'm lucky he lets me drag him to these places. Thank you for setting them up!

===============================

Still cruising and this time we had many days at sea. What was unexpected was that one day would be repeated because of the Date Line.


There are two ways to dine. Buffet or dining room. The buffet has the best ocean views and


you serve yourself. We like this buffet a lot.


Sometimes the buffet has surprises.


When there are many sea days we get to go to many glass shows. G Brian made this huge vase.


The next day it was out of the cooling box. He is a friend of Marshal Hyde's who we all know as BoDHiGlass. He made glass tiki necklaces. They both work at the Corning Museum of Glass.


Back at the glass show with Tiki Magazine. I wanted to show him my article.


Sometimes we had a meal in the dining room with our traveling companions Barbara and Polynesian Paddy aka Chuck.


We women appreciate our men!


One night there was a party and


we had fun watching the


Tahitian dancers perform.


On another night there was a sunset and then a late glass show.


I had promised if they went on the cruise with us that if we won a piece of glass we would give it to them as a thank you. So every glass show I was hopeful.


Well it finally happened. Dan's ticket won and he gave it to Barbara and she ran up to get the glass.


Here she poses with Tayrn who made the piece. Whew the Thank you has been completed1 I knew I married a winner.


Next stop will be Tahiti. Cheers, Wendy

Looks fun! I like the picture of the canopy of plants. A couple of the cave pictures look photoshopped, are you sure you were really there

Glad you won the glass, that is a funny story.
