Default Re: NZ_2019...The Missing Link

A quick look at the map shows there wasn't much north-south progress made... but things rather turned into a feast of sweet, little backroads
...and the kind of scenery that just puts the brakes on "progress".


https://isn.page.link/mYyE





The Weathergods are called upon...and promise a massive wall-of-water approaching from the South.
Just perfect for a dawdler of a day...with fast bail-out options on hand, when needed.





The Tukituki-Trail sounds interesting and the Swingbridge across the Tukituki River just south of town might be worth a look...











Waltzing the narrow blacktop to the coast...Blackhead Beach.









One for the 'lil tackers






Te Awa Rd.....cruising the ridge lines.

From the Ugly Hill Rd. to the Old Hill Rd.....Te Paerahi Beach from the Old Hill ridge, near Porangahau











Carving down the steeps into Porangahau for a quick lunch and some drinks.






LOVE IT
It doesn't get much more "Kiwi" than that!

A quick flip over the hill on the Wimbledon Rd. for a couple of "been-there"-shots...









...before tacking west towards Dannevirke and the delights of the Te Uri Rd.
Here's a highly recommendable mix of farm + forest country, the vistas guaranteed by staying close to the ridge lines, a little asphalt each end....and with a very enjoyable (and extensive) "guts-section" . HEAVEN!

Nearly at the western-end blacktop again...






Find of the day would have to be the partially narrow gravel rollercoaster of the Mangahei Rd. and Ngapaeruru Rd half-loop
adding very neatly to the delights of the Te Uri Rd..

While the saying is true that there is no bad or boring road anywhere around here...SOME DO STICK OUT!

Into the incoming weather front...









A quick look over the shoulder....still some blue where we just came from!








A quick run up Weber Rd. into Dannevirke....and the Dannevirke Holiday Park.





Not exactly stylish or cozy, but more importantly...DRY.





Time for a beer to seal another great day of travels!
