North Island Adventuring

We met some cops at the put-in point. I promise they were cool with the whole thing and we weren't getting arrested.

The First Month In (more) Pictures

In an attempt to properly document our travels we have been taking pictures with both our iPad and also our little handheld waterproof digital camera. That way we can take pictures on our nature excursions without brining an iPad and avoid looking like crazy (…okay crazier) tourists taking pictures with a tablet! As tablet enthusiasts will likely know, however, the iPad does not have a USB slot for us to be able to add the camera pictures to our blog posts. Therefore, every once in a while we’ll try to post pictures from our digital camera when we can get access to a laptop to upload them. Enjoy!
