So far, our North Island road trip has been completely defeated by the weather. Since last Monday, it has rained nonstop throughout the country, leaving all of our outdoor plans of hiking, biking, canoeing, fishing and beaching in complete shambles. When it rains in New Zealand, there are very few rainy day activities to find. This country was not built for such constant dreariness. However, we did get to soak up about 2 hours of sunshine today, and we wisely spent our precious time picnicking by the coast. I very much enjoyed the view we found slightly south of New Plymouth.
