We really do have quite a good forecast for the upcoming weekend, though you wouldn’t know it by our current weather. Since we arrived in Marsden Cove, Whangarei Harbour, for a brief stay we haven’t been left due to strong northeasterly winds, which will not quit.
Last night our electronic barometer beeped to let us know that the air pressure had dropped fast enough that a gale was imminent. This is quite a nice thing to hear when you’re paying marina fees. The Bay of Islands has lots of protected anchorages but there is barely a handful down here.
