We are up and about early at the moment and I had already dropped the hire car back and ran back to the campsite (the 2 mile jog hurt) before 8am. We spent a leisurely couple of hours at the Mount campsite before cycling out through Tauranga City.
It was a pretty easy day of cycling. The sun was more than welcome, it really struck home how different it is to cycle in good weather. The road was pretty busy and we were pleased to turn off Highway #2 onto the road to Waihi Beach.
From that point the music went on and we enjoyed the last 10 miles along the beach
The campsite is one of the best we have been to. A lovely older couple have joined us in the TV room concerned about their family in Christchurch, the city has again suffered earthquake aftershocks today.
The volcanic ash from Chile is disrupting flights from New Zealand so we will keep our fingers crossed as we edge closer to Auckland. I am just looking forward to going up in a plane and watching a film rather than jumping out the door.
