The brown day. A day showcasing the drought conditions currently experienced on the North Island. Most of today was spent tracking through farm land and the pastures are all quite brown. A fairly straight forward day. Not much climbing and not much descending.
First stop for the day was a quick servo stop at Turakina. Then a more substantial stop for lunch at Marton at an awesome Vietnamese Bakery.
Afternoon tea was at Fielding visiting with some relatives of Bill’s. Then a quick 15km in to Palmerston North.
