Waipu Cove - back on the coast again
Big thunderstrom in Whangarei on Sunday, so I took the day off, did some washing and watched the rugby. Staying in the YHA. But the weather cleared on Monday and I headed back out towards the coast. It was a long road walk from Whanagrei to Waipu Cove (40+ km) and that traffic on SH1 is a shocker, but it was good to be out of the city and back towards the sea and sand again. Like most of the seaside camp grounds, Waipu Cove is empty this time of year and a great place to re-charge the batteries after a long road walk. Back into the hills tomorrow.
