28Dec06 Mahia to Turihaua Beach via Gisborne

Looking over an interesting rock formation on the northern side of Mahia Peninsular you could see East Cape in the distance. We're on our way.
After leaving Mahia Peninsular and rejoining the main highway it's a steady climb up to the Wharerata Lookout. A spell here for a brew to enjoy the view with Gisborne in the distance. It proved to be a popular stopping place as a number of cars pulled over for a spell. Funny but all the motorhomes we saw all seemed to be going the opposite way to us - what do they know?
We stopped only briefly at Gisborne for a few supplies and then off to our first overnight North of Gisborne at Turihaua Beach.

Mobile apartment with million dollar views. Turihaua is one of the many great beaches that we were to stop at and at some stay over night.

That night plans were made for the 29th to move on, as we have been doing, in the morning, find an interesting place for breakfast and end up at Tokomaru Bay for the night. See you there........
