I know it sounds it sounds petulant to moan about endless walking on a beach but it does become hard work..
However all done, well for now now, next lot of beaches is I think, Paihia briefly then? Know Orewa and the Takapuna beaches are in there somewhere…will seem like childs play after this lot…
A really late start, nearly 12, ready to go at 9 but the tide was not, right up to the dunes about every fifth wave…so wait wait.
Only 17 ks but wind in our faces and sand as well, full frontal sand distribution today. Glad I have the thermal gear, wear that and a woolly jumper. I am sure it will get warmer.
No excitement today just plodding, a real bed at the end.
GLad to see my parcel had arrived but just starting to like my pack as it lightened up now have to fill it up with the next lot of food. Nik arrives tomorrow pm and the bush adventure starts the next day.
Abbie sets off tomorrow at 7.30 for Whangarei, her mission to walk 90 mile beach accomplished, like most of the people I have met, we never expected it to be quite as tough as it was..At least I never got rained on at night💦(Guess who has finally found all those cute wee symbols)
Think down to the Bluff would be enough!!!!With a yummy lodge with deep baths, a heated swimming pool, good coffee, gourmet meals and cheap as chips , ah no, that is heaven…
However Ahipara seems cute enough, may walk out to the beach settlement tomorrow, staying opposite the camping ground not too far from the school, not heaven..
