Can you believe that .. 10 years. I was looking at some old sailing photos of mine and thinking about the size of the kids and other things as we cruised up and down this North Eastern coast of NZ, how things have changed so much in so many ways in just that decade.
This pic was 2001 down at Rangipukea island off Coromandel
and this one was about 3 weeks ago in the same place
the boat has changed a little bit although we used that praam then. ( doesn't seem to be away that trip)
the little kids dinghies I built have been slowly getting retired.. the last one( one size up) on these two came away at christmas but had little use so its now hanging in the garage.
this kid is now 13.
The boy is 15
This girl under the dodger beside Kirsty is 19!
