Today we had our last full day of volunteer work in the Bay of Islands. We definitely got off lightly and were able to clean underwater signs that snorkelers can see from the surface. Some of us also took a steep hike up to a look out point. All in all it was a chill morning before heading back into the DOC boat to look for marine life. We saw a couple penguins when we were driving around and then we spotted some dolphins, finally!! They swam and jumped right next to our boat, it was amazing! We were all pretty happy that we could check that one off the list. Some of the group went to a resort bar "over the big hill" once we got back to camp. A well deserved break! We hung out with some of our neighbors during our last night on Urupukapuka. Everyone is ready for a hot shower and a bed.
Talk to you later,
