There are several small seaside towns dotting the coastline each one with their own unique charm. Again there was more tramping to do, but this time we only spent 2 leisurely hours walking through the forest and admiring the ...

... day, I leave on Friday, the day before the anniversary-the clean up operation is in full flow. Around 70% of the CBD has been, or is due to be, demolished, so there are vacant plots all around. Equally, some buildings have been fenced off and left, giving them a 'just derelict' look, signs advertising deals still sadly giving out their message. The first building I walked past was the YHA, disused. It is essential to book accommodation; there are fewer ...
