After a very good rest I continue the path. I visit Mangamuke Marae where I take the time to meditate in silence.

Then head me into the forest to spend the night before walking the next day to the sanctuary of Kauris. The weather has been raining for several days and as my path borrows a riverbed for several kilometers I decide to bypass this passage, by security.


So I leave by a long track, observe the biggest kauris trunck of the country, more than 5 meters of circumference (he was more than 2500 years old) and join Kerikeri on the East Coast. I find a nice campsite in a place preserve. It is the full moon, I take the opportunity to try to see Kiwis but despite that I hear them, I can not see them. They're very fearful.

Here the sunset and sunrise from the campsite.



After a coffee in the city center, I continue on the Te Araroa trail. Here no markings and lots of tars, this will be the case for the next 35 kilometers.
