My plans to relax on the beach here got completely obliterated... Strong winds and rain is what I get. But still, there are nice walks and other stuff to do. The weather's just not very nice to my photo gear.
Yesterday I got on the ferry to Russel and did some walking there. The trail up to Tapeka Point is my favorite. Amazing views! And the rain stopped to let me snap a few shots up there too.
I walked the coastline back to Russel from there. The tide was low, so it was possible but still an adventure. It took some rock climbing, a few water steps, some seagull attacks, and about 1h before I got back to Russel. I passed about 4 nice secluded beaches on the way. Would be perfect for a sunny day.
Then I got a burger in Russel, and then checked out a windy and wavy Long Beach on the other side of Russel.
Today I'm joining a tour to Kerikeri for some history, wine, and chocolate :)
