To the East Cape Callum (who we met in Dunedin on the South Island) met us in Gisborne and joined us on our journey to the East Cape. We stopped at Tolaga Bay Wharf, a really long jetty reaching out into the ocean. Our home for the evening is a campsite over looking the beach. The facilities consist of a drop toilet inside a corrugated box on top of the hill. For 6 bucks a night, you can’t go wrong. We had plans to wake up early for the sunrise over the easternmost part of the land. Was such a clear night, the moon lit up the place. Over 800 steps to get to the lighthouse to watch the sun come up. I was very out of breath at the top. Luckily, it was more than worth it. Moved onto Whakatane where we caught the moonrise. We treated ourselves to a bit of ‘normality’ and went to the cinema to see Guardians of the Galaxy 2.
