Not a lot of progress today. We had planned to make our next stop at Motunau Beach but after struggling into a strong headwind for hours, we decided to turn back and have made camp at the far end of the beach, north of Waipara River.
We did have some very unwelcome company today, when a 4 metre shark eyeballed us off Leithfield Beach. We obviously didn't look tasty enough as it lost interest and swam away.
We hope for better conditions tomorrow but nasty north easterlies are forecast.
