Touring New Zealand's North Island by Campervan

Though the wind was screaming, we walked the beautiful and varied 45-minute trail around the base of the Mount. The surf was very impressive on the windward side of the Mount, and even on the lee side the water was being churned up pretty good (although it didn't bother this famly in the least). Shortly after we got back to the camper, a heavy rain was added to the wind, so with the rain coming down sideways, it was a good time to do some laundry.

After dinner, we went to the hot saltwater pools next door, but it was far too crowded so we didn't stay long.
