On the left is the North Harbour stadium, center (with the red roofs) is Massey University, and on the right (white buildings near the horizon) is the old neighborhood.
I also found an upcoming event which might be a good break in for a new kayak and a new mountain bike:
Whakatane Great Outdoors - Montys Revenge
Bush Run 12km MTB 23km Kayak 20km
I can't find entry stuff online, but we should be back in Whakatane sometime between now and then.
And now the random part . . . some pictures of the mantises which were everywhere in Whakatane two weekends ago.
