We had seen in the distance from a lay-bye as we approached Cape Reinga what (we didn't know at the time) appeared to be sand dunes and agreed we would explore the area on the way back.
Wow, huge sand dunes appeared and you could easily think you were among those enormous dunes in the Sahara Desert.
A lonely lady sitting in the hot sunshine reading her book eagerly awaiting visitors wishing to hire sand-boards from her. A young couple appeared and we watched them climb the dune, it seemed ages before they reached the top and in seconds they had reached the bottom again, sand-boards "well oiled". They loved it.
Us, well we just watched and stared at these amazing sand dunes. If we had been a few years younger we'd have had a go. Nevertheless, a very worthwhile visit for the Cape visitors. Not to be missed.
