Matata

On the long and windy road. not far from Tongariro

We didn't realize how large a beach resort Tauranga was, but we kept driving along the coast until finally, we got to a deserted stretch of beach.You know how it is to try and find the perfect camping spot away from it all. Or maybe you don't. I will go a long way to find to find the best spot, and luckily Bill was usually game. Of course we went a bit further on just to make sure, but nothing was a nice as the first place we came across. Matata did have a fish store, and not much else, and we managed to snag dinner which we brought back to the van to cook. Other than a couple of fishermen who left after dark, we had the place to ourselves.

I am strictly a warm water guy myself, but relaxing with a couple of cold one's on the beach and then cooking dinner was delightful.
