A Short Break Away

A couple of weeks ago we headed off on a short trip with Paparoa Tours.  We were picked up at our nearest bus stop (a 4 minute walk from home) at 8 a.m.  The bus then drove in a loop around Whangarei picking up passengers before heading south.  The southernmost passenger we picked up was at Warkworth.  We then headed through Auckland and stopped on the Southern Motorway for a lunch stop.  Then it was West to Port Waikato.

                                                          We had a chat to two surf-lifesavers

                                                  and saw the damage done by recent storms

We then carried on to Raglan

This was all new territory for me.  We stayed two nights at a very pleasant motel.


  1. I love short get-always.. It is a nice break and and does not entail too much packing. I am glad you and your new husband are enjoying life.

    1. Yes, it was a lovely break and we are really enjoying our new life together.

  2. I just love road trips, we recently visited Raglan but it was on a very stormy Spring day.
