Tane Moana

Friday 5th March - Whananaki North to past Ngunguru - 25.8 km - 6.5 hours

Crossing the long Whananaki Estuary footbridge there were children coming in the opposite direction on their daily walk to school. Then onto a coastal track, with a minor detour to the Capitaine Bougainville memorial to people from a French freighter lost off the coast in 1975.

Continued on up and down, in and out of gullies, with some super coastal views down to the settlements of Sandy Bay, then Woolleys Bay. Over the next hill to the start of Matapouri township, but then headed inland for the Matapouri Bush Track. This took me up through a pine plantation, then into native bush, then into an area that had been logged a year or two ago, and then to a patch of native bush with a large kauri - Tane Moana (picture).
