I made it. At Cape Reinga Lighthouse, the furtherest place north you can drive to in New Zealand. On the way we stopped at 90 Mile Beach and the Gumdiggers Park, where you can see the ancient buried Kauri forest. Visiting the Gumdiggers Park gave me a renewed appreciation of how tough life used to be. On the way back we stopped at the giant sand dunes. Would have stopped at more places but a sumptuous seafood dinner awaited.
Funny thing about the lighthouse… it is way smaller than it looks in pictures, it’s almost cute!
