On the way back from Miranda we did a bit of sight-seeing (well you would, wouldn't you?) which I'll blog on in due course and then we stopped for coffee and a bite to eat at The Flip'n Bear Café near Katikati. The café had a wonderful setting and lots of atmosphere. We were the only customers and the service is slow which suited us because we wanted to see and photograph the Short-finned Eels Anguilla australis in the river running nearby.
