Whakaari / White Island

28th March 2016 – Helicopter Trip to White Island Volcano (Private Scenic Reserve), with Frontier Helicopters.

I had sprained my Ankle the weekend before.  The doctors at Greenlane Ascot A & E had directed me that hiking was off the table this Easter long weekend.  While my effective walking range was limited I was still able to walk short distances.  Decided at complete whim on Easter Sunday to grab the car keys and head down to Bay of Plenty to take a helicopter ride to White Island.  (Have to admit, I was very reluctant to let this Easter Weekend go to waste and am very glad that I actually bit the bullet and did this trip.)

Thanks to both Richard and Clare for a great afternoon.  Richard was both the Pilot and the Guide for the Trip with Clare looking after the Administration of the tour that day.  Definitely a trip to remember.
