The weather has not exactly been beautiful the last couple days, but it’s New Zealand in the winter, so I can’t really say I’m surprised (and I grew up in Portland, so it’s not like I’m not used to rain). Even with the less than ideal conditions, we headed up to Cape Reinga at the far northern tip of the North Island.
Normally I don’t really get excited about farm animals, but for some reason I just really wanted to take a lot of pictures of them today!
After passing the last gas station, we had about 20 KM to go and it was getting pretty foggy. I was a little worried we wouldn’t be able to see anything when we got to Cape Reinga, but it was actually OK.
Now we’re back in Ahipara, and tomorrow morning we’ll drive back down to Whangerei. As soon as we get there, I’m baking cupcakes, so I’ll have a fun recipe posted tomorrow!
