Set up our new tent for the first time to find out that it was crap
We went a walk along the beach to watch the sunset and see if we could recognise the place where they did the filming.
Loads of stray cats kicking about the campsite.
Next day got a hitch with the 3rd car from of a nice guy John Thomson who been kitesurrfing all morning and was on his way to work, definetly a bit more laid back here. He told us it is quite easy to hitch and a bit about some of the beaches. He dropped us at Lanakei beach which is known as turtle beach for obvious reasons. We went down and there was a giant turtle sitting in the sand with many swimming in the water about 10-20 metres out
The one on the sand was surround by people taking photos so it didn't hang about long. We walked along the beach, still managing to see loads of turtles in the sea just offshore and with lots of very expensive beach houses on the other side. Then we managed to find the Lost beach which we knew was nearby, we weren't really expecting to see the set so that was a bonus
After that headed along the beach and watched the sunset and then went into Haleiwa to get some food. We then had to hitch back to the campsite which we weren't sure how hard that was going to be as it was now pitch dark. Again didn't have to wait long as a pick up pulled up with, none other than, John, the owner of the place we had stayed in previously. He gave us a lift to about 5 miles from where we were going, we then started walking just in case, but got a lift from a student after about 25 mins, just as well as the ice for the beers was beginning to melt.
