We had struck lucky again with our accommodation ath Hahei Chapell. The chalets set in the gardens of this former Methodist Chapel were tranquil and comfortable.
The tide dictated that we should rush straight out with spade and towel in hand.
Our evening destination was Hot Water Beach.
This remarkable beach has hot springs in the sand which can only be accessed and hour before and after low tide in one specific patch on the beach. People were already gathering to dig and wallow.
Brian set to work with the spade.
