Hot water beach

... spot is magnificent! Trouble here is in pricing. A tour by kayak was 95$ per head and a one-hour group tour in a dinghy to Cathedral cove and a few more points of interest 75 $. This kind of excursions is really very expensive in NZ! We followed signs directly to Hot Water beach, just 3 km down, where we arrived far too early. Low tide today was around 9 pm so we were obliged to spend quite some time fooling in the waves. One ...

On the last evening we ...

A bit of shopping on the way home as we are having a BBQ for our evening meal. Frank and Tony may also sup a few beers.....we are on Mac's Sassy Red Best Bitters at the moment.....very nice. Bed early again after great meal. Those children certainly tire out us old ...

Rent-a-Dent

Our hire car arrived at 9.45 to take us to our next destination. When we went to book a car with the Tourist Office yesterday, we were mortified to learn that the only free car to be found was from a firm called Rent-a-Dent.
For those of you who are technically minded and want to know what sort of car it is, it is a big silver one wiith dents in it (not inflicted by us).
We drove to Thames via Whangamata, where Sheelagh did her teaching ...
