75% Family walk on the hill that separates Golden from Tasman Bay.
This part of the track follows a rocky path through bush, gorse and wasteland up to the transmission towers and back via the southern circle. Yeah, nah. No reception most of the way!

Is this guy reconstructing some old photograph? Hmmm. Seems so :D
Golden Bay view.
And right after turning into the southern circle, we discover this exceptionally old beech, covered in sooty mould and insects humming around it.
Half way through the circuit, Dad waiting for the chatty girls to arrive.
The tree bow, one of our favourites.
Purple pouch fungi are not rare here today!
They’re all benefiting from the recent wet weather.
Horopito, the endemic pepper tree.
