Don't Go Chasing Waterfalls


What does that mean really? Well, we didn't listen to the song and that's exactly what we did this past Sunday.


This waterfall is right by Karekare Beach, up the mountain/hills. There is a little trail down to the pool of the waterfall. It's just gorgeous. The most lovely thing is that it isn't crowded or full of tourists.

Although, it was a sunny day, the wind was strong. This is the view if you walk the trail to the far side of the beach. There is a more open, less forest way to get to the water, but you get your feet wet as you have you cross a little stream to get on the black sand beach.


The rough surf and wind made us turn back to the safety of our rental car. Though, we did stop by the Elevation Cafe on the way home. The cafe has a balcony in the back with great views. You can see Auckland!
