It's famous for surfing in New Zealand so I might have to try it there, although the water is going to be freezing! Maybe I'll wait until I'm back in Sydney instead. Now all I have to do is walk 15 minutes to the bus stop in what can only be described as torrential rain. And iweather says there's only an 18% chance it's raining...this could be an interesting ...
... available in that one pub. As a tour member you get a choice of free light or dark ale, cider or n/a ginger ale for the little 'uns. Unfortunately there were no Hobbits making merry in the pub... I guess they were sleeping off the effects of the night before.
Today I have been making plans to get down to Karen at Takaka. It seems relatively straightforward, but there may be a degree of hitch hiking involved; not an issue per se, ...
