Touring New Zealand's North Island by Campervan

Back at our holiday park on the beach at Whatuwhiwhi, I went snorkelling for a while. Though I never did find clear water, I got very close to several mergansers, so the swim was worthwhile. On the wade back to shore, I came within a foot of stepping on a stingray, though - damn muddy water! Luckily, the large swirl of water beside where my foot had landed was the only indication I had of what had happened.
