More sand and surf, as I head south and back to the beach again
Now day number 24 and the weather is kind to me again, as I head down the long 15 km beach walk to Pakiri. I have got to like beach walking, plenty of peace and quiet, no cars and not a lot to trip over if you don't look where you are going. And it's flat. The bird life is great to watch, as many of the sea birds have started nesting, so I keep well away from the dunes. Don't see another person most of the day, only when I head inland or get to a camping ground. When the sun is out and the walking is flat, then live is easy. If only it was all like this.
