One of our correspondents has gone further
afield than the Buns have ever managed ... Here is Barry's report to us
in his own words and pictures .. Thank you Barry!
I have recently returned from a trip to NZ and
was able too get some sun as it was end of summer.
The photos attached are of Waitata Bay, aka
Donkey Bay, at Russell at the north of North Island. It is easily
reached on foot from the car park at Long Beach and is secluded and
perfect. The sea was warm and gentle. The days we were there the beach
was almost deserted, but the folks who were their were friendly. Nice mix
of M and F with no "Meer cats" in sight. We also tried
Takapuna but no photos I'm sorry to say. Pekapeka looked great but on
the day we were there it poured and was cold!
