Ngunguru to Ocean Beach
Timing the tides this morning was crucial so I could cross the Taiharuru Estuary on foot. Low tide was roughly 9am so I started walking at 7am. It worked out perfectly and I didn’t even get my shorts wet. I walked inland up the estuary for maybe an hour and found the marker post which signalled the best place to cross. I used the long grass on the other side which was still wet with morning dew to clean the thick, black mud off my feet.
It was mostly road walking today. There was a short bush walk over Kauri Mountain then 6kms down Ocean Beach to finish. I was done by 12.30pm and had a swim to cool off. Katie arrived not long after and Jesse and I had a play in the water together.
I was able to get back in time to pick Ayla and Abby up from school and kindy which they always love. Abby’s class has been tracking my progress every day, learning along the way and doing their own little walks. It is so awesome. I took a photo of the board they have been using.
I recorded short clips of my day today from start to finish and had a go at editing it with a new app on my phone. It turned out good I think so I will do more of them.
