The Rest of the Opua Story


Three big storms and several costly boat projects came and went before we could leave Opua.   One storm brought 10inches (225mm) rain overnight.  The water was so full of sediment, it looked like land.  Opua and several other towns were marooned, with roads closed due to flooding or slides ("slips" as they're called here).

There is a short "tall ship", named the Tucker Thompson based here.

 
It's out on the bay most days.
