With a little change in route following the boat breakdown on the Kaipara, we set off early, following the straights out of Dargaville towards Tokatoka, Matakohe, and Paparoa.
This area is where Mike was born so pretty cool to be able to ride the back roads, with a special mention of the road between Paparoa and Maungaturoto, gently rolling and some awesome views.
Lunch in Matakohe and another push before arriving to hang with Mike's family for a break in Maungaturoto for the afternoon.
The last part of the day saw us hit the road for Kaiwaka and then on SH1 to Te Hana, which was a challenge with the traffic but much better than we thought!!
Headed out of the Beautiful Northland into ‘Auckland Supercity’ this afternoon - a great achievement although we’ll be sad to leave the North!
Gorgeous sunsets tonight from our spot in Port Albert, two very lucky but tired Kiwi’s!
