The weather has really set in today. It has rained most of the night and is still ‘persisting’. We left Ahipara this morning at about 10am and headed into Kaitaia to stock up. Rod’s biggest job in Kaitaia was to find an oven tray to fit the gas oven on the motorhome. Why it did not come with one I am not sure. You guessed it – nothing would fit. In the end we went to Mitre 10 and purchased a standard oven tray and Rod took it to an engineering workshop and had them cut it to size. A job well done.
We are now settled at Waipapakauri Ramp for the next two days (Location page is updated). Waipapakauri Ramp is situated off State Highway 1 and about 6km towards the coast from Waipapakauri itself. We are about 100 metres from Ninety Mile Beach. Weather permitting, we plan to do a late afternoon fish as we are down to our last bag of fish.
All is well with us and the motorhome is performing perfectly.
