... had a four-wheel drive - as there was a wide and rather deep-looking ford to cross. We spent a night at the lower camp site – just us and one other bus. Unfortunately we couldn't get to beach without braving the deep and fast running river, so the next day we moved to the upper site (with the other bus).

On the weekends we still do wine tours or trips to Moa, where we have been so many times, Jenn and I get the manager's price. I have also volunteered my time and helped out some of the guests with minor car repairs, such as changing brake pads, filters, checking ...
