The longest Pedestrian Bridge in the Southern Hemisphere

While we had the car at Otamuri Bay, we thought it would be rude to not use it for a look around the area.

We headed back over the hill to Whananake North so we could answer texts and emails and the set off on foot to check out the Whananaki foot bridge which connects the southern shore of the estuary to the northern shore.

I had to stoop to hold the hand rail where I felt the need and it takes about 20 odd minutes to cross it. It would be fun for the school kids in a blow to get to Whananake North School! 

An interesting crossing so after that we headed back to Otamuri bay and beyond. The seal stopped on the road just past the Doc camp and a rather twisty, windy road takes you straight up and straight down again to a bunch of surf beaches.

We stopped at Moureeses Bay where some surfies were having fun. Another stunning Northland Beach which you would never know was there.
