Someone said I should be wearing waterproofs!
No reports from Plamerston North. Just a town for a stop over, same can be said of Turangi, although as the trout capital of the world I did want to wet a line. Had a nice meal (overpriced) in the fishing lodge restaurant. We did not stay here as the rate is $400 per night (£220 for a bed only).

Next day was caving in Waitomo which is famous for limestone caves, glow worms and stalagmites /ctites. 3 caves and each one different which we covered over two days. 2 were very commercial but still enjoyable and the third was our own private tour, well there were actually 3 of us and a guide.

The exit by boat but we were not allowed photos inside. We have the memories.
