After a morning of organizing and cleaning the car interior for our move to the south island in 2 days we drove the 1.4km down to have lunch at Makara Beach WhareKai, ‘dining hall’ in Maori. It is a quaint cafe that is open only on weekends and is run by the couple that deliver the mail here! It was threatening rain but there were lots of beachgoers. Some were lounging on the cobble beach, some walking the path around the beach, even several snorkelers in wet suits emerging, one with a speargun! It was a calm day at the beach wind wise!
