Day 126, Monday 25 December 2017.
I enjoyed the almost empty suburban roads and the quiet motorway today, but as I approached Milford beach I could see that every available parking spot had been taken. Fortunately, motorcycles can park in places that cars can’t, such as the little triangular areas at the end of angled parking spots.
It was high tide, and I’ve never seen the beach so busy. Lots of swimmers, sunbathers, family groups having a picnic, and kids playing in the sand. On the reserve, the shaded areas were packed with tents as families enjoyed their Christmas day by the sea.
That’s my last ride for the year, as I’m on holiday out of Auckland until New Year.
Distance travelled: 35 km. Total distance so far: 17,398 km
