Today is "Falls" day.

22 12 2011

The Matai, McLean and Purakaunui Falls are all on our agenda.  Wow – they are all well worth the short, and sometimes trying walk, to see them.  Cathedral Caves was also on our list but the gates to these weren’t opening until about 5.30pm.  We figured by the time we had seen the falls, and visited the “Lost Gypsy” it would be the right time to go to the caves. Only one little hitch here – the “Lost Gypsy” is closed on a Wednesday!!

So, we did some more fourwheel driving – lots of gravel roads and along the beach.  The walk to the caves should be said that it takes 10mins to the beach and almost 40mins back from the beach.  The elevation on our GPS at the carpark where we started the descent said we were at 90m.  It’s a steep track down to the beach.  However, the caves are well worth the visit as well.  I had fun taking photos of various shells, sea vegetation and the caves of course!
