cook's oyster river

We moved back onto Anasazi Girl and stayed four nights at the visitor's berth in the marina while we waited for a good forecast to move the boat to Auckland.  This is the view of the Whitianga River from our berth.  The river and the numerous coves in this area provide a super protected spot for boaters to tie up.

When Captain Cook came to this area to watch the transit of Mercury and found the river teeming with oysters and shellfish, he quickly named this the "Oyster River".
