We started on the Perimeter track after saying goodbye to the old beauty that is Caldron House. The walk up the side of the hill was very much worth it when you came through a break in the forest to beautiful views of the inlet and the Hauraki Gulf, it was another stop and breath it all in moment. The track is well defined and marked, on the way down the other side we met Raphael who is also doing the trail, he is moving faster than our little family, I think everybody is moving faster than us but I am loving that we are taking time to smell the flowers on the way. Was good to met another trailer and share a few stories. We were lucky enough to get to Waiwera at lowish tide and head around the foreshore. Tide was on the way in so got to Hatfields Beach just in time with boots getting just a little wet. Then onto the Orewa beach for a walk along the foreshore. You can feel that you are in a more populated area, people are looking but not so many asking and stopping to have conversations. We stayed at the Top ten holiday park on the beach it was great to get some washing done and get ready to visit Tiritiri Matangi Island tomorrow. Bella once again is our trouper and had a great day.
