Day 134 - Whitianga, New Zealand

Day 134 – 20th October 2005 +12:00 GMT Total Miles 26923

Woke up to the howling wind and the torrential rain , made some breakfast and just chilled out put on some music and used my laptop. Jill and I thought we would head out, so at around 12:30pm we decided to drive up north to Coromandel town, this was a lovely drive through the hills and rain. It took about 45 minutes to get there, Coromandel is a small town with a dozen shops and a couple of pubs, we found a nice café and ordered a toastie and hot chocolate to keep out of the rain. The portions were huge, the hot chocolate was a pint. When then started the drive back and I insisted in stopping at the scenic lookout, so I pulled the car over and climbed to the top of the hill only to find that I could only see about 50 feet due to the rain. We arrived back at the hostel in Whitianga at around 3:30pm and spent the rest of the afternoon and evening updating our blogs, sipping wine and reading. Went to bed with the rain still pouring and the wind still howling. Let’s hope tomorrow’s a nicer day.
