So from Northland we headed south - see map for our route...

We wanted to go to the coromandel - but the rain was so heavy - hot water beach would be no fun in the heavy rain...

Instead we went

North Island has beautiful coasts and beaches would probably been more enjoyable in the summer but still we had some warm and suny days amongst the rain. The roads are so steep and winding aorund the coast lines and mountians. Napier was a lovely little town with wineries and a lovely harbour. Its amazing the whole place - everywhere you go is surrounded by sea and lakes and habours.

Now for the South Island....
