... were having so much fun that the score didn't really matter! Caroline cooked a delicious pumpkin soup and homemade scones for lunch to fill us up for our road trip north. Everyone helped us plan our route carefully as there has been recent storms in the north and some roads were closed due to flooding! Once the car was packed and we said our goodbyes we set off on our ROAD TRIP adventure exploring the north of the island! We decided to take the scenic ...

... Lots of cars get stuck on the beach - and again the driver was pointing out places where there were tour buses lost in the dunes. Interesting but what exactly am I looking at now? Just the dune... On the way home we stopped at the Kauri Kingdom where they have been carving furniture and other items out of the Kauri trees found in swamps.
