That's where I spent the night. Seems quite a pleasant place and has a small ornothalogical (sp?)gardens where I got the photo of the little bridge, Also a pic of a statue of a mythological maiden (Pania of the Reef) by the seashore. Came through some of the twistiest road I ever saw on the way from Upper Hutt; talk about slow driving !!! Came also through Hastings and stopped for a wander through the city centre and art gallery. Today I plan on going as far as Thames which is only 90 mins from Auckland.
The trip is nearly finished. Hard to believe :)
