Our President Jacky Keith had the exciting privilege of witnessing the return of the Mayflower after an extensive restoration period:

After a lengthy absence resulting in a complete refit, the Mayflower returned to Plymouth, MA last week. We joined hundreds of small boats in Cape Cod Bay to welcome her as she came into view looking spectacular under full sail!

In 1957 I had recently emigrated to America, and watched with great pride as the Mayflower sailed into Plymouth from England. It was hard to believe this new Mayflower followed the same route as the original ship in 1620.

Our travels started back in March of 2020. Our trip started and included a great week in Tahiti then New Zealand. Although that’s when Covid exploded while we were there in Tahiti. That’s when we found out they had closed the border into NZ. Thankfully we had Esplanade to get us back home. We finally got back on track to New Zealand this March. We had a full itinerary planned. When we arrived, we had a driver waiting for us to take us to our Glamorous hotel with a great view of Queenstown, Lake Wakatipu and the Mountains in the background. We traveled to Milford Sound by bus then traveled thru out the scenic Milford Sound. Then they flew us back to our hotel. Another trip was on a Steamboat that took us to Farm. We had a great dinner there and tour of the farm that included the sheep dogs working the sheep. We could go on and on about this trip. The people from NZ our super nice. This trip was great from start to finish. Truly a bucket list trip. Esplanade will definitely be our choice for international travel, without a doubt. <br />
