Saturday paddle boat cruise on Lake Maraetai going as far up the Mangakino Stream as the boat could get. On our return to the lake, the skipper backed the boat into a bank, chopped down a few branches, offloaded the bikes and we biked back along the Waikato River Trail 15 kms to Mangakino. Those not biking walked the same route all the way back to the lakefront. Pizza night at the local pizza place at Whakamaru was a great hit. Sunday we continued along part of the river trail heading past the Whakamaru Dam. Foggy in the morning but beautifully fine during the day. Free camping on the lakefront. Another backwater town in NZ with so much to offer.
