After leaving Norfolk Island yesterday, it was on to New Zealand! A long passage through blue water was filled with seabirds. We observed many petrels and shearwaters, including one feeding on squid. We also spotted flying squid, dolphins, and a large shark. The day was broken up by presentations, and, of course, by being spoiled by the amazing crew of National Geographic Orion. Midmorning sausages, pretzels, and beer were a great way to start the day for sure. During dinner, a blazing sunset had us all looking forward to Aoteoroa.
