TA day 14 Punaruku to Whananaki

32km total 313km

10 hours total 88h30

I am tired. The day started with a 10k on the paved road under a nice but already hot weather. Then the Helena Ridge track took me through nice forest of Manukas to the top of a few hills. It was warm but also very nice with fantastic and greeny views.

Then the trail goes on the Morepork track further south. It is nice because you always see the coast on the horizon. The lots of up and down took the toll on my Achilles tenants. Fortunately the track will be flatter tomorrow.

Right now it is raining but tomorrow and the following days should be ok.
