Day 20. Nov. 24th. Ruakaka to Waipu Cove. 25km.

The sun was shining when I started, but the rain soon set in. I walked towards Ruakaka in the rain along state highway one, with the road shoulder almost non-existent because of roadworks.

But after an hour, I was on the beach again. It was a broody sky, with the sun occasionally piercing the gloom over a dark blue sea.

It felt like a long day and was hot by the time I reached Waipu where I stopped for lunch. Then onto Waipu Cove, again along the road. Just as I got to the holiday park, Armand turned up. Lisa was already there. The last time I met Lisa was way back at Kaitaia. It was cool to hang out with others for the evening. The three of us went out to dinner and a lovely local cafe. So nice to meet up with people you’ve gotten to know already on the trail.

I've started to just post on Instagram at for now and will backfill after the trail. Thanks for following me on my journey.
