This is from the road out of Doneraile Park; last night’s camp site is just the other side of the bridge.
We came to rest today at the top corner of East Cape. We turned off the highway at Te Araroa and drove down a gravel track towards the lighthouse. After about 15kms we came to East Cape Camping Ground. After about 10 minutes a bloke called Len turned up and took our money, and after that we didn’t see another soul all night.
Although it was threatening rain, we bravely went for a walk along the windswept beach, picking through driftwood and hopping across rock pools.
