The coast from Orewa through Caster Bay to Takapuna
From Puhoi the Te Araroa trail moves out to the coast again passing the lovely little beach settlement of Waiwera and then over the hill to Orewa. Now I have reached the outskirts of Auckland. I start to feel excited about the prospect of moving south and out of northland that has been my home for the last 4 weeks. Orewa has a great little shopping area and a good chance to catch up on my email and blog. I spent two nights at the camping ground and waited out the last of the southerly showers, before moving further down the coast to Takapuna.
