We walked across the park past a very pleasant children's playground and across a bridge to the new walkway alongside a stream. This is going to be part of a much larger walkway. We then crossed back across the stream to the Raumanga Valley Reserve.
The walk took us across two parks with oaks and other European trees and into the bush with native trees to the waterfall and then back again.
Once again we were lucky with the weather with just a few drops of rain as we finished our walk. (Mind you we could do with some decent rain as the soil is very dry).
Unfortunately, I couldn't get a decent photo of the waterfall from below because of the bush.
We finished up with the usual coffee and then one of the party dropped me off at the garage to collect my car.
I also discovered that one of Max' carers is the daughter of one of the walkers - Whangarei gets smaller the longer I live here.
I was due to go up to Doubtless Bay on Thursday for a short break but when I got home there was a message on my answerphone and my friend is unwell so it is postponed in the meantime.
