Rain. Lots of Rain when I arrived, but warmer than Melbourne, so I was OK. I was hoping for better weather the next day because canyoning (abseiling) was in my schedule. Yes, with my gimp ankle.
I woke up to birds chirping and sunshine shining! It was on. I went with AWOL and we dominated the Piha Canyon. Javier was our guide and Connor was on the ride for training to be a guide. A Canadian couple went for the ride and they were awesome 😉
We saw an eel in this pool. It was quite friendly. It started raining, so we picked up the pace.
There were a couple of jumps after that but nothing too high or scary.
We also checked out the black sanded beach.
After Javier and I got dinner and a beer.
I was going to do the Canyonoz Canyoning in Thames, but it was double the price and they don’t pick you up from Auckland. It is definitely a better one to do and a lot harder. Something maybe my ankle couldn’t handle.
The next day I head to Rotorua for spas and natural springs and mud geysers.
