It is a beautiful sunny day with clear blue sky, time for recreation. It is the first day since Mach 7,  we do not work for any boat projects in the shipyard.

The Hatea River, just in front of our boat, is streaming through Whangarei town and coming from north, where it drops 26 m down as Whangarei Falls. To make it a nice day, we leave the car beside SuAn and hike along a beautiful waterfront of the river towards Whangarei town and than further through lush green forests to the falls. Since lots of rain during the last days there is enough water to make the white curtains and fine mist is clouding in the air. It is autumn in New Zealand and nobody needs to refresh in the water of the pool. It is a great hike and 22 km later we are back in our shipyard.
