This week I’m hosting Jure and Yannis from Coko in NZ. Yannis arrived a day earlier than Jure (who turns up tomorrow) so I showed Yannis some local sights…photos from Mukies, Horeke pub, Rarawa, and 90 Mile Beach. The first shots are of Yannis and I at the much loved Mukies, around the coast from the very famous Shipwreck Bay (Shippies). We had a great few hours out with a consistent easy break…
During the day we also stopped at Rarawa beach up North. The river that leads to the beach was brown due to run off created by the rain these last days. The colors, especially with the shadows around the Pōhutukawa trees, were crazy.
We also drove down the famous Northland highway – 90 mile beach – and stopped to check out a penguin and a stingray. Quite probably the stingray was chased into shallow waters by Orca who patrol many of the shores around the north island looking for stingrays to eat.
And on the way home we stopped to check out the beautiful Horeke pub. An old pub on the back of the Hokianga Harbour. One of the best pubs in NZ.
