I got an early start for once. That’s mainly because it was so noisy in the terminal and I couldn’t get a real sleep. After a coffee I was leaving the airport city on the busy road heading east. I then took some time to observe the landing aircrafts. After a river walk I had a breakfast break before hiking through an industrial district. After a residential part the trail went through some garden and then hit the road. Under the sun it was hot but that is part of the Te Araroa. I eventually arrived in Drury where Tammy will have me for the night. Her family has a nice house up on the mountain with a fantastic pool. It did a lot of good on my sore muscles from all this road walk. Tomorrow will be a single long road walk so I better get some rest.
