      ... the museum so you'll have to google it - as will I!) I believe it was an famous historic agreement between the Maori and the Whitefellas. Friedensreich Hundertwasser moved to Karetu near Kawakawa in the 1970s.

      ... cream parlour, seriously the best ice cream ever. When you go in you are given samples of every flavour to try, and their flavours aren't the usual ones they had all sorts. I had a scoop of strawberry and garden mint, with a scoop of chocolate. It was decorated with candy floss! We then went to a place called cassette for the evening which was a kind of bar/clubby place which was good ...

      ... trails we headed back to the toadster (one of these nicknames might stick) and continued forward, stopping at a breath taking view of Hokianga harbour, before hopping onwards to Paihia where we spent the night.

      The next morning we thawed out and ...

We headed out of the bay relatively slowly and saw all ...

      ... Brilliant. (I did really want to try them but there was sand and black bits in, I couldn't.) Went on a hike this morning to the tangi grounds. The views are lovely, got some great shots. Bye bye Paihia, back to Auckland for second leg. Seems strange we have known the group for 4 days and yet so sad to see people leave. Big (and I mean big) meal for us all for the expensive cost of $1.50 each! Cheap food, great company. I hope the next group joining us are as good. (More pics to ...
