... on the sea's edge while J adjourned to the balcony. Lunch on the balcony in the sun, then a short drive and walk to the top of our volcanic hill, Paku which at 178m gave us a view to sea with Shoe and Slipper islands among those viewable from the trig point A6LT at the top. We did then visit the other end of the seaward side of the beach, though this was coming into shade of the next hill along. It's been a tremendous trip and we have seen so many ...

We crossed between the australasian plate and the pacific plate (tectonic plate) on our way to Hot Water Beach and took a walk to Cathedral Cove to walk under the cave arch and have a swim and a sunbathe. It was stunning scenery. In the evening we went to Hot Water Beach when the tide was out to dig a hole along the underground volcanic hot streams. Our pool was hot one end then cooler ...

First to Hahei where we had a late picnic overlooking the beach, then a 40 min walk to Cathedral cove along the coast to the stunning beach with a huge walk through cave and finally to Hot water beach for 5.30pm. The slot being 5.30 - 9.30pm Hot water beach has hot volcanic springs bubbling up through the sand in two areas so you just dig yourself a pool and wallow! The water comes out at around 60c!! Hot!! We were beaten to the best spots ...

... created by wind erosion over the years. Down on the beach surrounded by rock cliffs. I am reminded of the Great Ocean Rd in VIC. Walking back up the hills quite a serious effort, but finally we made it after a few rests. Lucky I have a new wind jacket that we bought in Rotorua, really passed the test. Detoured via Cooks beach and the Ferry Landing where we are only 300 m from Whitianga but no, have to drive the 30 km back to W. Quiet rest of ...
