Last night I stayed at the Lappers house :D which was great, having not seen them for 12 years at least ... They haven't changed :)
Today has been a long and very packed day! I started my Kiwi experience bus tour, we're a small group and get on really well :)
We went to 'pak n save' which has the biggest gluten free bread section I have ever seen!!! We stopped at the most gorgeous viewpoint then walked down a cliff path to the third neighbouring bay called Cathedral Cove, which was absolutely stunning! White sand, clear blue water and beautiful rock formation that looks like a cathedral, hence the name!
We then walked back up the cliff path and onto the bus to Hot water beach where we are staying in really nice new cabins, we all chipped in and made meat patties and salad for dinner then headed down to the beach to dig a hot water pool..... Complete failure :) the tide was coming in so quickly that as fast as they dug a wave would refill it. So unfortunately we didn't get to make a pool but we got to stand in a spring and its burning hot!! I didn't expect it to be that hot!!
Next stop Waitamo Caves ...
