    Very nice place, not right at beachfront but that also means that you don't hear much of the nightlife.
    Very well equipped rooms (kitchen with cutlery, pots, etc.). Spacious bathroom, balcony. Free Wi-Fi.

    ... much more interesting that a high admission fee to see a replica of the Waitangi Treaty, a copy of which we have seen in Te Papa, for free! From The Bay of Islands we took a drive up to Cape Reinga. 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. Marjorie's (as we have named her) detour lead to a 13km stretch of the ...

    ... after the hectic week we've had. My legs are still throbbing from Tuesday, not sure if my thighs will ever recover! The group of us spent the morning chilling by the river. It was such a stunning setting and there wasn't a cloud in the sky. Did lots of jumps and flips into the river, there even was type of cart on a gang wore that transported people across. Probably the best place we had visited so far, it was such a great morning chilling and chatting so ...

    ... and Maori narratives in one fail swoop. We hopped into the cue at 6:30AM and boarded the bus heading north. The average age was a strong 40 years our senior, mostly from Canada, the UK, and a few Germans. Of course, there was a young Asian couple that opted to bring breakfast in the form of a can of tuna.

    ... to get to the Waipoura Forest where we should find all the old and big Kauri trees, but first we stopped at a wonderful view point from where we could overlook the mouth of the fjord.

    These trees are known for their very big and fat trunk which also indicates why they are measured by the size of the tree (by volume) rather the total height.

    The biggest was Tane Mahuta (which means "lord of the forest" ...

    ... back of the boat 3 times. The person who hit the duck the most win a free drink. I did not hit the duck. Once we had all had a go at shooting the duck, we then all had a go at fishing from the back of the boat. I did not catch a fish. While we were fishing the crew were cooking our tea on the BBQ. Luckily they weren't relying on us to catch our dinner! They laid it all out on the bar and once we had served ourselves we all sat on a really long picnic ...
