All by myself, don’t want to be……. That’s what our new neighbours thought when they arrived late last night at Tawharanui Regional Park Camp. We were parked up in a massive paddock all on our own until these guys decided to choose a parking spot as close as possible to us, with acres of alternative options. Maybe they felt safer been so close?
Today The Golden Girl headed back to Uni. We had an awesome 5 days and it’s now time for us to head back to the West Coast and continue our journey north. Stopped in at Buckleton’s Beach then Warkworth to restock after our guest had eaten the supplies.
Arrived in Pahi mid- afternoon. Pahi is a small Peninsula on the northern side of the Kaipara Harbour. A quaint little fishing community, with a small Camp Ground on the waterfront. Also famous for a very large Moreton Bay Fig Tree. It’s recognised as been the largest tree of its kind in the world. It is believed to planted before 1840. In 2011 measurements were taken by registered surveyor. Height 25.7 metres, Girth 14.8 metres, Spread 51 metres. It’s pretty impressive. (see photo). A quick walk at low
tide saw us come across a seal playing close to shore. He looked so happy flipping around, catching fish, floating on his back. Settled in at camp for the night, still a little cold so kettle on and heater is cranked upJ
