    Whangarei is a pretty big town. Well, big compared to Paihia or Akaroa or Queenstown. It has two grocery stores! Our first day in town we explored a bit, but were so tired from the trip as soon as we got our groceries we spent the rest of the afternoon and evening enjoying having a room to ourselves. We didn't just sit and watch TV for 5 days though; we got out and explored a bunch, too.

    Our first stop, and probably a very necessary ...

    ... other side of the river! We do stop to takes some pictures, see a wedding party being photographed at this very attractive spot and "bump" into Angela and John, a couple who were on the trip yesterday, so have a bit of a chat before getting on our way. We reach Waipoua Forest and the vegetation became very dense and the road twists and turns through the tall trees and ferns. We stop to look at a huge, 2000 year old ...

    ... the road comes to a deadend and I finally have to accept the Satnav may have been right after all.

    On the right road up the hill there are signs saying "Kiwi Protected Area".
