Cape Reinga – Whangarei – Muriwai Gannet

In Tapotupotu Bay there was muesli breakfast on the beach. Coffee later at a gas station, because we had no electricity. Our journey then went through Northland to Cape Reinga, where the Tasman Sea and the Pacific Ocean meet. We walked about 15 min a hiking trail to the lighthouse and enjoyed the spectacle. A curious seagull provided us with company.

In Whangarei we stopped at a beautiful waterfall. Kawakawa offers a hundred-water toilet. In the tourist information office of Tarewa Park a (stuffed) kiwi could be seen. In Muriwai Gannet Park we set up our tent on a campsite and walked again to The Muriwai beach. The sand is dark grey "Black Sandy Beach". High waves rolled on.

For bathing it was too cold for us today at 19 degrees.
