On the way to the hostel we stopped at Hot Water Beach, so called because when the tide is out you can dig a hole in the sand and sit in a pool of hot water from the springs beneath
The main activity in Raglan was a surf school, but I intend to learn properly in Australia where the water is warmer and when I will (hopefully) have enough money. So Sarah, Beck and I went for a walk around the area on a jungle-like trail after it had been raining the entire day. Sarah managed to slip and fall on her arse which was quite humorous, and Beck took 12 years making her way round even with the use of a makeshift stick she had picked up along the way. After that we paid $2 for the use of the sauna and stayed in there up to the point where I was ready to faint.
An evening of omelettes, beers and more card games ensued, with a couple of free shoulder massages thrown in for good measure. Who said travellers have to live in squalor?
