Hiking Te Araroa - Hadfield's trail blog 2015/2016/2017
A leisurely start to the day included bacon and eggs for breakfast for some of us! We needed a few things that required a trip to Palmerston North so we borrowed a vehicle and headed off mid-morning. A couple of purchases at Bivouac Outdoor was followed by a food resupply at Countdown. By then we had already had enough of there city and shopping, so headed back to Feilding!
After a rest we headed down to town to watch a movie - we decided to watch J K Rowlings' Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. An entertaining movie which we all enjoyed! That finished about 5.30p.m. So we shot across the road to a Thai restaurant where we all managed to consume a delicious main course, followed by dessert! I managed a few blogs, which was great - all in all, it was a good recovery day.
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"!!
