26,27 & 28Jan08 Whangarei Heads

Auckland Anniversary weekend for 2008 saw us head north to stay at the Blue Heron Motor Camp just short of Parua Bay on the way to the Whangarei Heads.From where we were parked the opportunity to fish was only 50m away and yes we did catch snapper. How good is that.We took the opportunity to cover some of the area as some of the following pics will show.A view looking into Parua Bay.Urqharts Bay, one of the last bays on the Whangarei Harbour side.From Urqharts Bay looking across to the Marsden Point Refinery.A short journey over the hill brings you to Ocean Beach, Whangarei Heads, very popular with all especially surfers.A little deviation to the north before heading home took us to Pataua. This was a place we wanted to check out for future reference. The estuary proved to be a popular spot for both swimming and the launching of boats.Even if the camp was a little tricky getting in and out of for motorhomes like ours.Oh well that's it for another weekend.
