Off to Sunset Beach which is just south of the Waikato estuary, about an hour’s drive south of Auckland. The weather’s been fantastic recently, and today’s no exception. The area seems fairly remote once we leave the main road, and cross the river, following along its south bank, till we get to Port Waikato, then further south to the beach itself. There’s a little cafe here where we enjoy good coffee and scones before walking on down to the beach. There’s a few cars on the beach, a common sight over here, some belonging to fishermen others just seem to drive onto the beach for the fun of it.
