    ... the drive on up toward Russell, we had the pleasure of seeing not one but two rainbows, and the second one was a double rainbow. This was the first time I can ever remember seeing a double rainbow. Who knew I’d have to come all the way to New Zealand to do it.

She heads to the room and comes back with some bread and cheese for her, she also has changed into her pyjama bottoms.

So close yet so far again for the second time running at the Pippi ...

    This walk takes a full day, so I decided to do the section between Opua and Paihia, starting near the car ferry landing at Opua. The weather is perfect and the sun shining, as I find the start of the track. The surface is sandy gravel and somewhat slippery, especially when going downhill.
