Rā 124 Rāmere 5 o Haratua

‘Twas a busy work day today so good to have something to relax to this evening. We went to see Moana Maniapoto. What an amazing evening. Loved the stories and the music. An engaging performance which left us all buzzing.

Another 10km on the Toi Track and beach. Still need some distance for Cranleigh in two weeks time but pegging away. 
We called in at McLaren Falls on the way home – one of those places you see the signs for and always drive past…this time we didn’t! Interesting spot. 

Love this concept of helping fellow walkers on the Toi Track!!

Whakaari/White Island. Active volcano. Just amazing.  We were lucky with the weather so the boat trip over was fine – just a little bit choppy. 

Can’t describe it succinctly and have heaps of photos so it’s hard to choose one. 

My 360 turned out well.

Early start so I could have an early finish to fit a trail running in on the way to Whakatane.  Jo and I managed 10km at Okataina just before the sun set. Stunning. Hot pools at Waitangi Soda Springs  to finish before heading to Ohope to meet the boys. Perfect!

Meetings and more meetings. But escaped at lunchtime to catch up with a friend and spent half an hour chatting in the sunshine in Hamilton Gardens which was lovely. 

Fascinating lecture at the uni on cyber psychology from a visiting professor. 

Looked up from reading this evening to find I was being watched!
