Just 15 nm to go before we leave the Pacific Ocean and enter the Whangerrai River . We arrived at Tutukaka in the rain . There are fronts crossing New Zealand today and strong westerly winds forcast for the weekend . Very sheltered with a narrow entrance and quite picturesque ;not unlike Lulworth Cove . The coasttline has ben dramatic and beautiful . Many long sandy beaches and some spectacular cliffs . Shame about the rain and wind but its preparation for pembrokeshire
