    As today is basically another transit day Cheryl has let me do this blog. It should only about an hour from Rotorua to Whakatane so there was no rush. Whatatane is on the north coast of New Zealand with nothing really north of it apart from thousands of miles of the Pacific Ocean. So it was an easy start to the day with the car packed by 9:30.
