Last "Truck Inn Too" Road Trip

This is the last road trip in "Truck Inn Too" before she was sold. It was around the Far North revisiting places, friends and family. Now we look forward to the next stage of our lives as we settle at Snells Beach and hopefully the purchasing of a smaller van in the forseeable future.
Our first lunchstop, Helena Bay.
Parked right on the foreshore for our first nights stop at Oakura.
View from our site, Russell Top 10.
We went fishing, Bay of Islands.
Taipa lunch break.
Lunchstop, Omapere.
On the road through Waipoua Forest.
Trounson Park DOC camp (highly recommended)
