... tells us the busses are made in New Zealand south of Auckland, using Mercedes Benz engines. The bus has greater clearance than usual so it can handle the deeper ruts in the sand, caused by rivulets of freshwater running down to the ocean. The Maori had hundreds of villages along 90 Mile Beach (actually 65 miles long), and Robin says they piled shells around the perimeter of their villages so they would receive warning sounds - crunch- if an enemy ...

We were slightly lead astray by our sat nav who liked to take us down gravel paths rather than sticking to the twin coastal highway that would have gotten us there just fine.

After an hour we still hadn't found anything, the guide had warned us that it was very much up to the dolphins how much of them we see on a trip. After two hours I was asleep in my chair and looking forward to a hot shower when we slowed down having spotted some other boats around a pod of dolphins. We pulled in and everyon ...
