I took the start of the track and crossed the bridge onto the Heaphy Track, then walked along the nikau walk.
Back in Karamea I took the steps up behind the campground onto the top of the stopbanks and was surprised by how wide the Karamea River was.
Then I drove down for a wander on the beach, which I had completely to myself! I loved finding all the granite rocks along the sand, especially the pink-hued ones.
Tonight I ate dinner out at the historic Karamea Country Hotel- very pleasant, with beautiful gardens.
