Arrived Maitai Bay, Karekare Peninsula

Matai BayJust a quick update to let you know that we ended up at Maitai Bay on the Karikari Peninsula last night.  We are on a Department of Conservation site and again only about 50 metres from the water.  We are finding the DOC sites really good.  They are generally on the water and with us holding a DOC pass, there is no cost to us when we stay on these sites.

We are thinking of staying here for three or four days as there are heaps of walks, cycling and fishing opportunities on the Peninsula. Rod went for a quick fish last night after we got everything sorted but no luck. He was saying that there was a slight SW wind forecast for today so ‘Wilson’ may get an airing.

We will update the blog with photographs in a couple of days just before we leave.

    Sounds like you are both having a blast. I have just arrived back from the other end of the country, went to Stewart Island – to tramp the Rakiura Track, fabulous,,, stayed in the DOC huts, very basic, but as you are finding up where you are, the camps/accommodation/huts etc are so close to the water. Heard a bit of commotion one night, got up to watch 4 Kiwi wandering around, scratching for food, just grand to see. Continue to have fun

    That looks awesome! I must say I’m a wee bit jealous. Take care out there.

    • All going well hon. Touch wood, not one drama so far. Motorhome is going well, weather brilliant and we are meeting some great new friends on our travels. A number of them have done the Australian adventure so we are getting good information from them. Take care. Love Dad xx
