We had lunch in Whangarei, next to the marina. We did not visit the Clock Museum, but thought it deserved a picture!
Just outside town were the Whangarei Falls. Truly lovely, but we decided against the billed-as-1,250-step walk, down and alongside the falls, toward a kauri gum park (as in gum tree).
We did see a cool vehicle, a pedal boat that didn't seem that hard to propel. The little boy at bottom was whizzing around, having the time of his life. I want one.
