We have arrived safely!

Saturday November 17th, 8:00 P.M. local time (7:00 a.m. UTC)

We have arrived safely and are at the quarantine dock in Opua, New Zealand.  Now we are going to sleep…. will write much more in our blog over the next few days.  Everything smells so good – the land gives off an amazing smell after 12 days at sea (as do we after several days of not showering and wearing the same clothes night and day!)
