... Jay V and returned to the car and set the sat nav to Aukland. K it indicated a four hour journey. We left Whakatane rejoining the Ocean Highway. The roads were almost empty and delightful. I was conscious of becoming a little tired a couple of hours into the drive and took care not to exceed the maximum 100k per hour speed limit.
