Our next stop was on the coast in the surfing town of Raglan. This town gives access to fantastic beaches which seem to go on forever and that have huge rolling waves ideal for surfing and other water sports. Although rain had been forecast we awoke to a beautiful day and decided to take advantage of the weather and go for a kayak in the estuary to visit limestone formations on the shore known as pancake rocks.
We rounded out the day with a visit to the beginners surf area to see the sunset. A quick rain shower en route gave us the treat of a rainbow over the rolling landscape.
