    Tonight we are parked in a POP (934) hosted by Mark Nugent in Mahia. He seems like a real character and we will catch up ...

Great morning for the nature lovers :) Next, we pack up the minibus and head out. We stop at Tolaga bay for some of the group to jump off the ...

    ... almost climbing our waders. It was the strangest thing I have ever experienced. We were allowed to touch them towards the front of their heads. One of the guides had one climbing his waders, and he was rubbing it like a pet dog.
