Touring New Zealand's North Island by Campervan

Returning to Pakiri Beach, we waded across the mouth of Pakiri Stream, hiked down the beach a bit and had a fabulous afternoon of doing nothing but laying on the empty beach and playing in the surf. While we had the beach to ourselves, there were a fair number of people back on the beach that you reach without wading across the stream. We thought about taking a horse ride on the beach as the people in the photo are doing, but were in super lazy mode.
