Raglan Day Trip

Quick Review of our day trip to Raglan

Left Hamilton at 8:30 on Saturday. Stopped at Bridal Veils Falls to get some quick sots of the waterfall with the new Camera. About 13kms off the main road but well worth it. Got to Raglan just before 10 and met Steve from Raglan Kayaks. Would recommend calling before hand to reserve the kayaks and find out what the best time to kayak is as the harbour is quite tidal. Steve will give you directions on where the best spots are in the harbour and how to get there. There are some stunning limestone rock formations in the inlet and secluded coves where you can hop off your kayak and go for a swim. Spent 3 hours just cruising around the harbour, taking photos and swimming. Back on land we had Tacos for lunch from a Venezuelan guy operating out of a mobile caravan. You got to try it, it's down the same lane as the Raglan Coffee Co. After lunch we headed to Ngaranui Beach for a swim- its about 4kms out of Raglan and a popular surf beach with lifeguards on patrol. All in all a fun day of activity for the Kiwi summer
