It’s been great spending a couple of days in Wanganui. Standing ovation to Dianne (Scout name: Ruru) and Bill (Karu) for their outstanding hospitality and hot shower – makes it very hard to leave 😉
When I first came in to Wanganui it was hot and my eyes were obviously bleary… I thought this sign read “Welcome to our Fairly Friendly City”. How low-key would that be?
Today I finished up walking alongside the Wanganui River and followed SH3 south for a while before heading west at Turakina and reaching Turakina Beach – about a 29km day.
I had the pleasure of chatting with Bill Charnock most of the way today. A keen harrier (as well as Cub Leader) he was using it as a warm-up for a half-marathon walk tomorrow. Very keen!
And his company was very welcome…
