I woke up from my midday watch and saw New Zealand for the first time. We are almost there. In less than 40 miles, we'll be tying up to the customs dock in Opua. I am excited and relieved. We both look forward to a good night's sleep and reuniting with our buddies on Bella Star and Dream Time. This chapter is coming to a close.
