Woke up at 7.15, needed to be off site by 8am. Shoved some cereal down my thought, got dressed, packed the van up. No time for a cuppa.
Head in to town, first things first, NEED coffee. Will anywhere be open, it is still only 7.50. I spy a bakery with tables out on the pavement, park up and get a LARGE flat white. I sit an the table outside watching the world go by as I sip it. After about 30 minutes, I begin to feel awake.
I really have no idea what to do with my day. I have a walk through town, pick up a few supplies and get back to the van. I have a look through the brochures and maps and decide on Waihi. There is a walk around an old mine.
I get there have a look around the town an read up on a few bits about the history of gold mining and head for the information centre to find out where the walk starts and roughly how long it will take. I am a little wary about overdoing things after my hypo mid walk the other day. I have a look around the display at the museum, which took a bout an hour and decode on lunch before so I tackle the walk.
After lunch I decide to forgo the walk after all, as I still feel exhausted, it must be all this fresh air. I get in the van and head towards Waihi Beach, park up, set my chair up and get my book out.
I while away a couple of hours and head to the nearby campsite. Set my van up and have a cuppa and a bite to eat and walk along the beach.
I saw this guy on the beach earlier and I wondered what he was up to as he had a flags flying from his quad bike, so I had a chat when I got to him. He was fishing, he has a little remote control submersible which he attaches the line to which has a load of baited hooks and it takes the line out to sea. They seem to take the fishing quite seriously hear. As I walk further along the beach I spot a family with a similar set up fishing as well.
The sun is starting to set, so head back to the van for the night.
