A greeting and haka was performed outside the carved meeting house and then we went inside for the cultural show. It was great. One of the girls was an amazing soprano. Al reckoned her voice was a bit too cultured and perfect.
Sadly we had nearly no time to look at the treaty house. We raced through each room and then we bolted back to Paihia to get on the boat for our dolphin ...
... manages to get a head and part body into the boat. Around noon, Steve calls stumps, even though we are still experiencing some activity, so we retrieve our lines and return to shore. Steve then sets about filleting our catch so we can take it home. What a feast - over two nights we enjoy grilled kingfish and snapper followed by kingfish risotto both superbly cooked by Louise and Peter. The remaining fish is frozen and left for the unit's owners. Day 5: We ...
... amazing ones we’ve seen in South East Asia (Looking at you, Luang Probang!) Still, we enjoyed the walk around them, and luckily for Han, there were no chickens around this time. The rest of the day was spent completing the longish drive east to the Coromandel, although we did break it up with an amazing hot mineral water swim.

... checked out Waitangi, the origination of the infamous Treaty of Waitangi that granted rights to Maori people and then decided to go way off course since our plan of sunbathing was thwarted and headed to check out some boulders near the coast.

We stayed for 1 night in our camper van.
We arrived quite late after a long drive and received a warm and helpful welcome. The site looks straight at the falls - lovely.
We used the small but clean kitchen for breakfast. The showers and loo were OK. We hired a kayak for an hour the day we left and kayaked right up to the falls - great experience.
