Hiking Te Araroa - Hadfield's trail blog 2015/2016/2017
A very hectic last few days tidying up stuff for home and farm saw a last minute flurry of activity this morning, as we had a 2.50 flight through Auckland to Kerikeri! made the flight safely enough thankfully.
Now at Maria and Andrew's place above Opua. Lovely view up the Waikare Inlet - thought I would post a photo since we should be heading up the inlet in maybe 12 days or so - to head into the Russell forest!
Hope it looks that good when we are back here walking! Day of rest tomorrow, then due to start at the Cape on Monday a.m.
Belinda and Anthony (aka Tony) Hadfield made a decision, in their late 50's, to do something a "bit different" and walk New Zealand's 3000km Te Araroa Trail over summer 2015/16 - although updates will now tell you that this plan will take longer now!!. As the old saying goes - "don't leave home 'til you've seen the country"!!
