The forecast was for rain all day, and every time I checked the weather, it said it was going to start in 10-15 minutes. So, I spent the morning drinking coffee in a few different cafes (and catching up on blog posts!)
In the afternoon, since the rain really didn’t seem to be amounting to much, I decided to go ahead and do a short hike between the Spa Thermal Park and Huka Falls (and back). Of course, it did start raining while I was out, but it wasn’t too bad. The falls were nice, but the hot river back at the thermal park was super crowded, and I didn’t feel like negotiating a spot so I just headed back into town.
Put on my “fancy” dress and treated myself to a delicious dinner at the nice restaurant across the street from the hotel. I had forgotten my phone in my room, though, so have no pictures of the well-plated coconut curry prawns or slow cooked pulled lamb. Instead, here’s the menu from their website.
