I know that before long you are going to be absolutely fed up of seeing beaches on this blog if I'm not careful so today's sets the scene for some detailed shots in the next few days. Actually as readership of blogs seems to fall off a bit at weekends that might be a good time to post about plants and things.
Ngataki Beach is on the Eastern side of the 'top bit' of the country and, as we discovered, is on the tourist trail for the coaches on the way up to Cape Reinga. We arrived to a deserted beach and were discovering all sorts of interesting things when a 4x4 zoomed off to the far end of the beach with locals off for some beachcasting.
|The amount of seaweeds indicated some recent heavy seas|
|These weird trails in the sand puzzled us (ignore the 4x4 tracks!)|
|A less usual seaweed|
|Two adventure coach loads! Fortunately we'd seen what we wanted to see.|
