After some brisk winding uphill around the coast, we soon found ourselves admiring the views south to Waihi Beach from where we began:
And north to beautiful and untouched Orokawa Bay:
Steven ran to the end while I
rested did some gait analysis in the sand:
I think I have a cross-over gait...
The track was awesome, although a couple of parts were a bit hairy scary - notice how I am clinging to the right side and not the left?!
But my Roclite 268's stopped me from slipping into the Pacific Ocean. I can tell we're going to have lots of adventures together in the future!
I was disappointed that SportWatch failed to connect to a satellite though. Half the fun for me is seeing a new route mapped out with all its elevation and pace changes. Oh well - first world problem!
Did you explore anywhere new this weekend?
Which do you prefer - sandy beach or rocky cliff top?
Have you been to Orokawa Bay?
