A day for the hikers. Set off and walked the Wild Pacific Trail along the coast from hotel to the west. Lots of little detours to lookouts with great views across the Pacific and along the coast, called Artist's Loops.

Radar Hill was a vital comms station during the 1950s where they used a radar to detect any missiles coming in from the Soviet Union. Now it's just a pretty lookout up a huge hill- took me half an hour to very slowly push my bike up the hill- and just 5 mins to shoot back down again!
I continued down the ...
