This weekend was the Tauranga Weekend Trip… and it was amazing. Tauranga is such a beautiful place! We started the trip with a walk through a set of very old gold mines. You really could feel the spirit of the former gold diggers, creepy! Then it was time to climb up Mt Maunganui, what an intense mountain that was! Liesette’s face was as red as a tomato when she finally reached the top of the mountain- But it was worth it, the view was amazing! We could see the large coast of Tauranga, the harbour and a lot of other things. You’d be forgiven for thinking the way down would be easier than the way up, But this time it wasn’t. The way back down the mountain was a completely different route that involved a lot of narrow pathways, climbing and rocks. Not everyone was brave enough. A small group stopped half way with the difficult track and went on the easy one. What they did not know was that they walked in the middle of a field with sheep. It was pretty funny to watch them walking through the sheep paddock. Following the hike we went to the beach. The waves at the beach were massive! We had pizza for dinner on the beach and watched a great sunset. After dinner it was time to party!
The next day started with a great breakfast of scrambled egg, spaghetti and toasted bread made by Kyra, Aleid and Liesette. Thanks for that! It was delicious. It was a good way to recover from the night because we had another day planned with a lot of activities. Our first stop was Waihi Beach, a beautiful beach known for the good surfing waves. Our next activity was a great 2-hour walk. It was a long walk but this walk had a lot of great views. There was a little waterfall, a 1.1 kilometre long tunnel and we saw even more old gold-mining trails. It really was great weekend. We took some photos during the trip. Check them out here!
