|A cloudy start to the day, and a chilly end to the day, but in between it was absolutely baking again. We had a leisurely start to the day, then cycled into town to explore. We started at the lake edge and visited a Maori Meeting House and wood carving store (managed to bag Nick a birthday present there!). Then we cycled around the shops and restaurants in the town centre to check out what was there – both definitely warrant closer inspection.
The town is really nice. Good layout, some really classic buildings and clean and tidy too.
We stopped for fish and chips for lunch, then headed back to the campsite. I did some washing and swam in the pool, Nick wrote some postcards and did some reading.
A nice quiet night last night, disturbed only by a helicopter that flew over at about 4am at what seemed like about 10 meters above us, and by a chaffinch that started chaffing at about 6 and hasn't stopped yet!
For some reason this camp site seems inundated with French people. It goes like that sometimes, everyone seems French, or German, or Dutch, or Spanish. Fortunately there's not often too many Brits – or Americans. In fact on American we met told us that only 15% of Americans even have passports. We're waiting for them to leave so we can have our dinner.
