Debbie does...round the world
5th May 2017 - Adventures in New Zealand
Parapara and Collingwood

A bit of a sleep in today and was wonderful waking up to the views of the bush thru the upstairs window and hearing the birds singing. After a breakfast of bacon and eggs sitting outside in the sun we decided we had to go out and enjoy the beautiful day. There was a private track behind the cottage by the Parapara River - went for about 15mins before ending. A very pleasant walk and then messed around by the river - could have a shallow swim here in summer. Then back to the cottage and drove to Parapara Beach where we did another walk along the beach for an hour before having lunch at the small park.

Just a word of warning re the cottage no phone signal or interent - woohoo.

Then onto Collingwood - had a look at the small museum there which contained lots of interesting bits. Then went a bit further up the road as MR had found a Lookout walk which left via the Old Collingwood Cemetery. The track was very scrubby and lots of gorse - not a particularly nice track and wouldnt recommend it really - lookout views were nice enough but my opinion is that there are nicer walks around.
