Warkworth to Paihia, Bay of Islands

We were up, breakfasted and ready to go by 9am.  Bob and Moira were taking us to meet Roy and Heather at mid-day.  We were going to meet at Whangarei, have lunch and then drive to Paihia with Roy and Heather.  We had time to visit some of the beautiful bays not far from Warkworth before setting off on SH1.  As is becoming the norm now, the views were stunning.


We did meet and had a lovely meal in a harbour-side restaurant and then transferred our baggage into Roy and Heather's car before our drive to the Bay of Islands

We wave goodbye to Bob and Moira and hope to see them next week before we leave New Zealand.  On the way, Heather insisted we stop and have a look at some public toilets at Kawakawa!!   I've just included one picture but they are amazing.

Once we had settled at Roy and Heather's, we took a quick drive into town to book a couple of trips.  Tomorrow afternoon we are going on a boat trip around the Bay of Islands, through the 'Hole in the Rock' and hopefully see some dolphins and/or whales.

In the evening we had a lovely dinner, watched TV for an hour or so and fell into bed.
