Okura Bush Walk

After the devastation of the rugby we felt the need to get back to nature.  Drove up to Stillwater and did the first part of the Okura Bush walk (6km). Had lunch next to the steam at Karepiro Bay and then headed up the hill for the return walk through the bush.  It was furthest we have walked with James, he did really well and got to ride on my shoulders a few times.  Track was pretty muddy in places - which is pretty normal - but there were some complaints about the smell.
