Yet another trail, around the headland, and again we came really close to capuchin monkeys. At one point William said "phew there's a disgusting smell here, like mouldy cheese" which was apparently a peccary (pig-type creature). We were told that it had run ahead of us and unfortunately we didn't see it.
The views from the headland were stunning.
We were having our picnic lunch on the beach, when ...
... He laughs and say, "no English for you, only Spanish. You need to practice". He tells our server not to speak to us in English. We order two slushy fruity drinks and the server says, "you're the boss. Women are always the boss." Damn skippy! I like this place already. The drinks are the perfect addition to the sunset. As the restaurant starts to fill up, we catch the bus back to our hotel so we can pack and get ready for our transfer to our new hotel 5 hours away in the ...

The rain stopped after about an hour and we walked down to a take away fish and chips shop for dinner. It was almost as good as the one we went to in Takapuna and way better than almost all others we have tried in New Zealand. It came with a chipotle mayo side which seemed a little odd but it worked really well.
