26/29Jan07 Mangawhai Weekend

With friends Mike, Lynne and Harry (little poodle) we set up for the weekend at the Riverside Camp at Mangawhai, North of Auckland.
Harry is a much seasoned traveller and I'm sure enjoys the time away as much as we all do.
A quick trip to the camp store to get a newspaper and to explore the 'lay of the land' or should I say camp.As you can see we're very busy much of the time - yeah right!And Mike is there to make sure we get 'IT' all done on time.We were parked right next to the water, the Mangawhai estuary that provided safe and fun swimming for all......plus some flounder that night for breakfast.Talking about flounder it is now time to prepare the floundering gear as the night was nearly upon us and the tide will soon be favourable.During this visit we learnt that this camping ground, like so many others, had just been sold to a developer so who knows how much longer it can be enjoyed by the many who have permanent sites and those casuals like ourselves.
