Phew, it's been quite busy traveling the last week. Since we got the car we've been doing so much and squeezed in as much as possible.
Christmas wasn't crowded as we had hoped for. The beach parties and barbecues were quite absent both Dec 24 and Dec 25 i Whitianga. Anyway, we spent a lot of time on the beaches enjoying the sun and waves. We finished off with some food and wine close to the beach yesterday.
Today we spent many hours in the car in the ride down to Wellington. 731 km. Tomorrow the ferry will take us over to Picton on the South Island for further adventures.
