We have been to Russell (located in the Bay of Islands) a number of times over the years. We usually take up residence in the Top 10 motor camp with a tent. This time was a little different given my wife was due to give birth in about 1 month – needless to say an air bed on the ground in a tent was not an option!
What to do in Russell? Walk around, look at the history, then site at one of the bars along the waterfront and enjoy the sea breeze. There is a certain nautical ‘air’ about the place that I really dig.
