Monday 16th November 2015…it had to happen!!

sooner or later and today was the day for heavy downpour most of the day!!!

I left the house around 9am and I had planned to go on a hike before driving north but it was just raining to hard so plan B…..which was to get a hair cut…found a barber shop in town and I liked the cut she gave me!!!


The drive was slow and tiresome only 300km but took nearly 5 hours and always like this…



I arrived at my destination around 4pm


At Whangarei Heads where I had booked a place for the night….when I booked last night I knew it fit my criteria just did not know how nice it would be….




Did I mention a bedroom for Mellow yellow…


Almost forgot the view from my bedroom




My space is below the main house nice deck and all for 79 dollars cannot be beaten!!!

The rain finally stopped and after settling in I decided it was time to stretch the legs so went on an 8 km hike to this glorious beach and headland


Wonderful views everywhere….

My phobia with cows continues….


I needed to go on that path but they just looked at me!!!!

I enjoyed the walk and then came home and fixed a light supper and decided it was time to re organize all my stuff so I emptied the car and did a sort out, then a great hot shower and here we are again 10 pm…..

Tomorrow I want to do some hikes and scenic drives around here before I head north again and I have a place booked for two night starting tomorrow this will be the farthest north I am going on the North Island….

Yashi Kochi!!!!
