We are nearing the end of a very long trip where we are staying in 28 different accommodations.

The Nats love a good road, and supposedly the big highway will eliminate the traffic jams which characterise work days and holiday weekends up here. Now that the bulldozers are ploughing through the coastal towns, even its supporters must be a bit put out by the noise and dust. Ya can’t stop progress though.
While in this area, we made a trip up to Castlepoint and its lighthouse. On the way we encountered a serious cattle crossing in progress, and were able to watch the working dogs in action. Our goal was to reach Castlepoint at low tide as there is a sizable cave to explore, but our one hour later arrival prevented us from being able to enter as the water was already to high. The entrance was guarded by an army of seals, and we encountered a few on the way ...
