    As explained in the previous tip, I came seeking a wild coastline. I wasn't disappointed. After the bush walk we went to the lookout indicated at the end of a peninsula. It promised much and delivered.
    Looking inland (pic 1) was a splendid bay where people come to holiday yet, turn around 180 degrees and the fury of the ocean is immediately apparent. Uncertain sandbars lashed by the sea driven by stiff onshore winds (pic 2) leave a lasting impression of a place for humans to avoid.
    The weather (pic 3) looked like it could turn into anything within half an hour and, while fascinated, it's a place I loved to look at but wouldn't tarry for long.

    Fancy a sand sledge? You can hire board to sledge on that from Kaitaia town. But we did not hire tha board so we tried sledge without board.
