Day 2; Te Werahi Beach – Te Paki Stream Mouth

5.5 Hours.

Over Herangi Hill and past Cape Maria Van Diemen. First hill (all 160m of it), and onto Twilight Beach. Bumped into a couple of folk en route, stopped for lunch at Twilight Beach camp site at the southern end of the beach. Toilets, rainwater, cooking shelter, good grassy clearing for camping.

After lunch headed off up, over and past Scott Point, down the super staircase onto ninety mile beach. Small area to camp at start of beach but no facilities and no water.

Continued on to Te Paki Stream mouth where we camped for the night in the dunes. Not the best area to find campsite. Plenty of water though, (too much sand). Shared our campsite overnight with a wild noisey boar who shat and left big footprints but was never seen. Suffered a bit of heatstroke.
