Day One Hundred & Seventeen (29th Dec) – Waitarere Beach (North Island)

16 02 2011

Jen and I thought we would make the most of the lovely morning and head to Manawatu Gorge for a 3-4 hour walk through the gorge. Unfortunately Jen only had flip flops and had forgotten her shoes, we had no memory stick in the camera, we had no water, we had no map… we had no clue… we had to turn back…

The walk was abandoned after only half an hour, instead opting to have lunch and coffee’s with Sarah in Shannon. Our afternoon drive was equally fraught with problems. Winston’s car, which he had kindly lent us for the day had lowered suspension and this was making for slow going on the unpaved road out the back of Shannon. We soon turned back for Waitarere Beach.
