So, it got pretty mucky out and we decided to leave the Bay of Islands and forgo the "must do" activities. We made a pit stop (literally) in a small town called Kawawa to see their only tourist attraction on our way south towards Auckland. We are really loving the many thermal waterparks all over NZ and decided to stop for the night in a town that had one. VERY RELAXING!!!! Well sort of... a million unruly kids were running around and all the teenagers were trying to hook up!
We'll take the next two weeks to tour the south part of the north island. So much territory to cover...so little time! We'll then take the ferry over to the South Island at the end of the 1st week in December. The ride is supposed to be spectacular..
Hopefully we'll find a store that sells turkey so we can celebrate Thanksgiving on Tuesday!
