10/02 Exploring a bit of the area around Paihia including Kerikeri & Russell (NI) – 2,715kms (86kms travelled today).

Feb 10, 2020


The rest of the troops headed off on the Dolphin and Hole in the Rock tour so we headed to Kerikeri to hopefully get my riding glasses fixed which was a pointless exercise but saw some yummy sights then we headed back and got the car ferry to Russell to catch up with the others for lunch followed by a leisurely afternoon in our apartment, more hot tub time and a roast lamb dinner currently being cooked. Yummo!


Beautiful stone building at the River Outlook Kerikeri.


And a lovely building plus cute little chapel there also. Lucky to get a couple of shots in before we were overtaken by a tide of coach passengers from the cruise ship.


The lovely shore including the wharf at Russell.


And in the opposite direction.


The Marlborough Hotel where we all lunched. Was just beautiful out on the veranda.


Coming back on the vehicle ferry.

And a quirky building and some yachts as we head back. Tranquil.
