Northland – New Zealand
It was actually necessary business that made us go to Whangarei from Kaitaia at this time of the year. WINTER (June – August), is actually not the best time to be travelling. This is also the time of the year with the lowest temperatures.
But we did not only do the business, we managed also to do some sightseeing.
THE TOWN BASIN MARINA
A marina is “an elaborate docking facility for yachts and other pleasure boats,” says The Concise Collins Dictionary. Here you can see fishing boats, and not only local yachts but also international yachts.
CLAPHAM NATIONAL CLOCK MUSEUM
Here we find the largest collection of clocks in the Southern Hemisphere:Victorian Cuckoo clocks, many unique and fun clocks. There are also rare antiques.
We stayed for three nights at the CASA BLANCA MOTEL. The motel is actually within walking distance from the CBD.
