We are finally ready to hit the road and Mark has rented a car for our further ventures into the Northland. On the way to get the car we were travelling with some French backpackers who were hoping to do a dolphin swim in the Bay of Islands after they rented their car. The young man of the couple actually spoke almost perfect American English which …

To Swim or not to Swim?

... separated from its own pod and had been adopted by this group who would take care of it until it found its own again. So we cruised back to Paihia not having had a chance to swim, but satisfied at having been able to watch such fun creatures right up close. We even got a bonus pair of New Zealand Fur Seals and a group of Little Penguins on the way back.

As we missed out on the dolphin swim, we decided to treat ourselves ...

Stunning views and crisp Sauvignon Blanc...

... to self-contained motorhome travellers. Looking along the coastline in the direction we were headed, we found the Helena Bay Gallery and Cafe on our route through the Northland, so off we went, leaving Takapuna and Auckland behind.

We had read about the award-winning Kauri Museum and it was enroute, with a slight detour, so we made a stop there, and boy, are we ever glad ...

... sorted out too (much to our relief!) We explore a few of the shops – this area has a strong Maori heritage and therefore there are lots of Maori craftwork for sale. We head back and grab some lunch, then jump in the car and head a few kilometres north to the Waitangi Treaty Grounds.

The Treaty of Waitangi is pretty important to the Kiwis. It was an agreement between the Brits that had landed there and started to occupy the land and the Maoris that ...

... back and cooked a meal and we sat out until 0200 chatting drinking and having a laugh, Thomas and Sebina are a great couple and we will meet again i am sure.

    There are many places to stay in the small community of Paihia and the Kingsgate is a fine choice. It is on the main road next to the water, has lovely big rooms, an outdoor swimming pool, and best of all free breakfast. Not just continental breakfast, the whole shibang of a breakfast with meats, eggs, toast, cereal, fruit, juice, coffee, etc...

    The rooms offer the anonymous feel of motel rooms anywhere and so once inside you can forget where the room is actually located, this is a plus or minus depending on your preference.

    Would recommend it for those needing or desiring a quiet, clean, spacious room with electrical outlets located in the right places.
