The day before the storm that is supposed to be wet and windy! We did some shopping to fill the fridge before the storm comes, and for snacks during the Rugby World Cup Final on Sunday! We finished the day with a walk around Paihia, probably the last time before we leave on Tuesday, Halloween. We walked up a set of stairs we’ve noticed before, but never explored, and got a great view!
The staircase is just to the right of “Paihias Wee Toilets” and goes up the hill behind the building. The toilets are worth a picture too!
We stopped at the Tipsy Oyster for some oysters and beer, and again I forgot to take a picture of the oysters before we ate them!
Across the street, along the beach, are a line of towering pohutukawa trees I mentioned before. We spotted a few of them beginning to bloom, a harbinger of a summer-like Christmas!
