Now in Paihia and ready for a break
I have arrived in Paihia and I'm ready for a break. My feet and legs are good, no blisters (yet) but after a number of days road walking the soles of my feet are sore. So it's a day off for me, as I hit the highlights of Paihia, which really means a real bed at the Paihia YHA. Weather is still good but not as warm as last week, great in the sun but the wind is cool up on the ridges. Passed through Kerikeri yesterday, by the old stone store, beautiful old building. Will re-supply here as I get ready to move south again.
