If you are going to get a
puncture, you might as well do it in pleasant surroundings.
It does not get much better than the road near Makarau.
Morning tea ( OK -
it was mid-day) at the delightful Cottage Café just
beyond Puhoi on the way to Ahuroa.
We were trundling
down the straight line (from this angle)
over the other side of the valley about 5 minutes before we arrived at Puhoi.
Just after the road exits stage left it takes on a considerably steeper aspect.
Bryan and Jaap were too busy talking to have a look at the above view, on their left.
After regrouping at the top of the hill we were ready for the descent to Ahuroa.
The school at Ahuroa is always a delightfull place to stop for lunch.
(unfortunately when the camera is set on delay it does not see that people have their faces obscured)
