New Zealand - Day 6

Not such a good day today, it rained for the entire day and we spent most of it driving from the Bay of Islands to Whitianga on the Coromandel Peninsula. We did stop briefly in Whangarei to walk down to the Whangerei falls, a very pretty spot.

We arrived in Whitianga at about 4:30pm and checked into the Oceanside Motel on Buffalo Beach Road, hosted by the genial and helpful Bill Mehenay. I was too exhausted after that drive to go out to eat so we got takeout from Dino's; delicious beef lasagne, pumpkin and ricotta ravioli, salad and garlic bread.
