We stayed in an AirBnB on a lifestyle block between Hastings and Havelock North, which was the perfect location if you’re planning on exploring as it’s pretty well in the middle of all the main attractions. Lots of you have asked what we got up to and what we recommend to do down there, so I’ll tell you how we filled our time in this post!
We were lucky enough to have brunch at Hygge at Clifton with Alida & Nathan (whose wedding I photographed 4 years earlier). For a delicious brunch in a quiet sunny spot near the beach, Hygge is wonderful!
We visited the Arataki Honey Centre (highly recommend even without kids it was so interesting!)… tasted a whole lot of honey and then bought up large (Tim goes through honey so fast). We also went berry picking at a place that just had a little sign out on the road saying PYO! We were eating boysenberries and raspberries for days and it was bliss.
Here follows unedited cell pics to fill in the bits I didn’t document with my big camera!
