    ... time to wander around the farm area and time to sit around and talk. At about 1pm a group of us decided to go into town and grab some lunch. We drove from the farm into town to a shopping center. Here we went to a sushi place and had lunch, then picked up some more alcohol for the party. On the way back we stopped off at a local tourist attraction, the Whangarei falls, nice for falls, but I have see better and worse, after a few pictures, we headed back to the

We tried jumping over a smallish stream leading into the sea, I took a running jump and landed right in the middle of it resulting in very wet feet but Ben took a rather large running jump and landed firmly on the other side!
