Set off for Gizzy or Gisbourne via Whakatane but we liked the look of Whakatane so we decided to stay here for a night. Lovely sunny day in the 30's. We find a nice motel - The Cortez - with a pool and a nice courtyard. We check in and then go to the beach (it is actually a river mouth) for a sit and read, with a beer. It is beautiful and quiet. Enjoyed a coffee and florentine at Penny's cafe. Then back to the motel, more reading, ...

White Island is described as awe inspiring, terrifying and in some ways fragile and beautiful. It is New Zealand's most active volcano. It is a fascinating natural laboratory of hissing fumaroles, lava bombs, glittering yellow sulphur crystals, unusual rock formations, bubbling mud pots, hot thermal streams and ...

... afternoons was definitely a time the shops didn't like to open. We finally found a shop open that Becky had often been into and bought several things, Cotton On. In we go and I get 2 T-shirts at a massive $2 each, Becky doesn't quite get the hang of not spending money, but a jumper and T-shirt coming it at $20 for the pair is still acceptable I guess! After buying a few clothes we got a bit of a scenic tour of the area, a trip over a mountain/ hill and we arrived at Ohope beach ...
