Day 6 Waiheke

 A 4.30am start. Picked up Andrea and headed to the City. Organised everyone's start packs. We left on the 6.45am ferry it was a beautiful morning and we sat up on the top deck and enjoyed the trip.

When we arrived at the top wharf Willy pointed out a huge Ray swimming under the wharf followed  by an array of little fish. I couldn't help but remember the size of it as I swam later and Steve Irwin came to mind! The first half of the run didn't seem too bad but I crashed about 8km from home the heat really got me and I must admit I gave up a little- but hey I did it and it is all good mileage for Paris.
