Visiting the centre of North Island.
After two nights in Opoutere waiting for a pleasant weather, I’m moving to Waihi.
Today it’s rain, wind, rain, wind, so I’m staying in my tent, writing my diary, reading, but no cycling!
The day start with 5min ferry’s turn and I have one just for me and my bike :-). Today I’m going to go to Opoutere. The place is situated in an harbour between the beach, a sand dune and a pine forest. It looks like “les Landes” in France.
Today I start later, it’s 9:45am. Matt is building his own house and Caitlin has to make thousand of tales before summer time. So I proposed my help as a wwoofing. They will be available in 3 weeks so I changed a bit my plan. I will visit the center of the North Island now, then come back to Coromandel Town for a couple of weeks (or more, or less, I don’t know) and finally continue my way to the east as it was (almost) organise since the beginning :-).
Today I’ve planned to reach Whitianga by the 309 road. This night was cold. It confirmed itself when I discover this morning that all the grass was freezeed! We are in the end of winter and it’s the first time I see that, I’m really astonished!
Today I’m gonna reach the top of the top of Coromandel Peninsula and the blue sky is come back for at least two days. Perfect! I shouldn’t have to come back by the same road because I will take the Coromandel walkway :-)! Karl did it by walk, I will ride!
