We were on the lookout for a post office (last minute tax info to send to Uncle Sam) so we headed to the center of town and found a great looking building marked Post Office. Psyche! It was a former post office now used for community services. So we wandered a little more and discovered that Tauranga is a really neat little city
Fromthis neighborhood park we drove to the crown jewel of Tauranga - Mount Maunganui. Imagine a mini mountain at the end of South Beach and you've got the idea. We spent the rest of the day walking around and then relaxing at a beachside cafe. It was a great day and much needed. Our only disappointment was that we still haven't found an IPA anywhere on
the North Island. Actually, they don't even know what we're talking about. This could be a deal breaker.
Eventually, we left Tauranga and headed further south looking for a place to stay for the night. We found a great site in Ohope and plan to spend some time cruising the
beach here tomorrow.
Hope all is well stateside. Hey who won the final four? Seem to have missed it.
