Tomorrow morning we will be leaving the hotel at about 10am to drive to the airport for our 12 hour flight home. I know it's cold at home but when I get there it will seem different from freezing in the air conditioned room on the 12th floor of this fabulous hotel.
We found one eventually just by chance and then onto Pagoda Street Market. Back to the hotel to drop off the shopping and out again for lunch. By mid afternoon we were both flagging so Sandra had a kip and I sat and read a book.

After our visit we started back to Paihia with just a short break for a little snack. Just as we were arriving it started raining with a vengence but now it is all clear again.

Then we drove to Taputaputa for a picnic lunch - just see the picture to see how fabulous it was.
Then it was time to move on to Cape Reinga and the lighthouse on the most northerly tip of North Island. Once again, the views were absolutely stunning - every time we turned a corner there was another fantastic view.
