Wonderful day spent on kapiti island with “Coops” eco island day trip . Fantastic coffee from back of coffee car on arrival at the boat club , lovely Lucy helping to take payment , Harry the dog excited to see everyone, Dave so professional and expert in his knowledge of nature and sharing it all with us . Sam such a competent tractor driver ( thanks for the boiled sweet) and Coops bringing it all together with his friendly and relaxed personality.
We had an amazing time on the island and the sound of the bird life felt like we had entered another time and space . We walked to the top trig on the Wilkinson track , slowly , and listening and watching for all the bird life . On our return to catch the boat we had a Takahe walking towards us .
One amazing day .......
