Just an hour outside of Auckland lies the mystical black sand surf haven of Piha. Down a steep winding road into a lush secluded valley, this little hippy town is the perfect place to spend our last few leisurely days of van life.
After an afternoon of strolling down the warm beach and an evening of movie-watching in our van, we narrowly missed what appeared to be an insanely incredible sunset. Are those clouds on fire??
By the time we dashed across the campsite and over the sand dunes, it was already down to this.
Still, not to shabby. But I think we'll go ahead and stick around another night to see if we can do better tomorrow :)
