... two very narrow lanes and no shoulder. So my 12 km ride through Anawatu Gorge was a game of dodgems with the cars and trucks that drove by in what seemed like pretty heavy traffic. To make the game even more interesting, there was also a reasonable headwind trying to blow us out onto the road or over the edge into the gorge the whole way. This experience has made me proclaim that SH3 through the Anawatu Gorge get's the gong for Tour ...

... The verges by the beach were covered in flowers, all in full bloom, looking most impressive. This wasn't some council effort to attract tourists, it was somewhere well off the beaten track. We can only presume that the local residents must have sown seeds or planted at some point. A nice view to wake up to every morning though.

We were travelling through an estate belonging to a very wealthy American. He had bought it some years earlier ...

I caught nothing although whilst Lucy was making a wonderful lunch of soup, the lady, who we had now made friends with and had been chatting most of the afternoon, managed to hook herself a 5 ft shark which ran like a steam train and was too much for her to handle so she passed the rod to me.

... developed and we walked along the famous wharf which is the longest in NZ. The day was a brilliant blue, warm after a frosty start and we picnicked overlooking a very benign sea. Not too many accommodation options in Tolaga and we had to stay at the Tolaga Bay Inn which is a rather faded white boarded hotel cum backpackers, room ok but we had to share a bathroom. ...
