Hiking Te Araroa - Hadfield's trail blog 2015/2016/2017
I woke early and had a shower at 0530. B got up when I got back to tent to head down to the beach for sunrise while I went back to sleep after a while!!
B got some lovely early morning shots while I was snoozing.
We chilled out for most of the day - recharging electronics, washing, food restock, lots of blog writing!! Found time in that busy schedule :-) to go for a dip in the estuary and then briefly in the sea. It is an area that is potentially rip-prone so we were cautious, especially as there were not large numbers of others around - but at least we can say we got wet!
Just to prove our intent, B also managed to get a selfie of herself in her togs :-)
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"!!
