Nico wanted to go to a bach on a beach somewhere out of the way for his birthday. Pourerere beach did the job well. The number of baches and caravans there suggest that the place is quite busy in summer but we were about the only people there that weekend.
The beach is sheltered from the Pacific ocean by a large mudstone reef. I don't really understand why the reef hasn't been washed away yet. The rock was soft enough that it turned to mud under our feet. More like clay then rock really. Yet the reef goes out a hundred meters or more into the ocean.
