... white cliffs of Dover , England, which I haven't seen so couldn't compare). These are light colored cliffs right on a long beach with black sand, the sand was so smooth and the beach inviting for a long walk but we had to continue.

We also went to the oldest and still functional gas station in New Zealand! Then we got the ferry over to Paihia which took about 15 minutes. We had a lovely walk along the beach and admired the beautiful surroundings. We planned to spend the night ...
