Distant Lands

Wednesday, 14 November 2007


Piha, New Zealand is what happens when the world's surfers get together and dream about a place.  It is 200% water - from the ocean that fronts it, to the mist-laden rainforest at its back.  In November, it is a clammy-damp.  Nothing a little fleece can't handle.


There are tidal pools to be explored.  Waves to watch.  Hills to climb.


And a great nature/Maori culture visitors center at the entrance to the area.


It's a 45 minute drive from Auckland, on fairly twisty roads.   There was a tasty cafe at the base of the hill. A nice daytrip when still recovering from a long flight.
