    ... fields to beaches with sand that was soft as feathers. I’ve seen amazing plant life from a native palm tree that takes 20 years before they ever even form a trunk to silver ferns which are one of New Zealand’s national emblems.

    ... up, left Kaitaia and had a nice day of cycling in the improving weather. After about 40 kms and a nice lunch stop in Mangonui, it was another 10 kms on a nice sunny afternoon to Hihi Motor Camp for an overnight stay.

    Day 7 - Nice weather, again! We got off to an early start but struck quite a number of those NZ hills. While having a lunch break in Kaeo, I spoke to a nice Moari lady who told ...

    ... bay and up and down each headland. At each summit, there is a bench seat, for viewing the scenery. Passing several beaches, the path weaves through mangrove swamps, and tree fern gullies, passing numerous cottages with water frontages and even a small ship building business. Rocks covered with oysters cluster at the sides of beaches and at one point I pass through ...
