Haruru Falls

Christmas day was a day for not doing very much at all. Nothing was open, so we drove up to Haruru Falls just outside Paihia, to look at them. It seems we weren’t the only ones with the same idea as there were a few people around, including one fisherman.

Afterwards we readied ourselves for Christmas lunch, which we had booked at one of the few restaurants that had decided to open. The weather on Christmas day wasn’t brilliant – there was a thin overcast all day –but it was warm, and we were fine sitting outside.

Pulling a cracker

Christmas lunch didn’t involve any prawns or barbies, nor any Brussels sprouts. It was a leisurely affair, after which we came back for a little rest, which lasted the rest of the day. Life in the fast lane!


  1. Those falls are bigger than photographs make them look - that's a five-metre drop

  2. So glad to see you got all spruced up for Christmas Nic!

  3. All this eating out in caffs and not a mention of what's on the menu. Too, too mysterious. Menu samples, please. Make us envious !
    Right, back to the pigs in blankets and mince pies.
