We went to Hikurangi and turned off at Jordan Valley Road then drove back through Hukerenui. When the Rest Home went on Monday the water was lapping at the road.
This isn't a lake but the Hikurangi Swampland which is usually grazed.
A few miles further on and the cows are grazing happily on higher ground with the floods in the background.
We then came across these lovely rocks with moss? covering them.
There is still a lot of rain in the ten day forecast so I can't see it going down anytime soon. This is the swampland that drains over the falls I posted a few days ago.
