Anyway we got back to the car felling hot after the walk so I gently wound my window down - no electric windows in this bad boy car - and at the final turn the whole window fell into the door!
We took a wander down and checked out the New Plymouth pubs and then a walk down the pier where they have the bendy Millenium Wind Wand so after getting a few more classic pictures we headed back to hostel.
Our second day in New Plymouth was less eventful - we got the window fixed and headed to a park to do a less strenuous walk, feed the ducks and visit the mini zoo. Allan got a popsicle so he was happy!
We then headed to Egmont National Park, home of Mount Egmont where we did some more walks. Rather than challenge the snow capped mountain we took some shorter tracks - an hours walk to Dawson Falls through the bush which was good and then a two hour track that took us closer to the mountain and had loads of different scenery which was also really nice.
