We arrived in Piahia late afternoon. Looked at rooms on the beach, they were small, expensive and noisy. A wee bit out of town and we came to this lovely little place that was not only affordable but oh so peaceful.
After the shopping trip it was time for a little dinner before turning in for a long ride in the morning.
So tomorrow (Oct 29) we will head to the light house. Not only is it the Northern end of NZ it is also steeped in history and Maori legend , so stay tuned.
