Last week I shared a photo in the post Our cruise on the MS Noordam seems so long ago showing the cruise ship from shore. This is what it was like pulling into the Bay of Islands at dawn. Our Russell shore excursion was scheduled to begin early, so the boat was buzzing with activity as people prepared.
As I said last week, Russell was a delightful little town. These days, I wonder how they’re faring with no cruise ships to come in and flood the town with tourists. I don’t know when or if we’ll take another cruise, but if we do, I hope we get to see little towns like Russell. If you want to learn more about this cool town, check out russellnz.co.nz.
