Sept 16th: Per Usual, the weather forecast was supposed to be raining but we had a small window of sunshine that we wanted to take advantage of. We decided to go to Duder Regional Park. It's located about an hour south east of Auckland. Right when we arrived, it started pouring but soon after it cleared up and we had some beautiful weather. I really enjoyed Duder, because of the beautiful lush green rolling hills filled with spring blooms and sheep. There was also the aqua blue ocean of Hauraki Gulf in the background.

We started our hike. It was a pretty mild hike and only took us about two hours to complete. It was just incredibly muddy and filled with cow and sheep poop. It was pretty hard to tell what was mud and what was poop. I ended up stepping in a huge monstrous cow poop too.  I think it must of been my lucky day.

We also got to see a ton of sheep. A really cool thing about walking on these tracks is that they are partially through farmland, hence you get to see a ton of sheep and get up close and personal with them. They are quite sheepish, if you know what I mean. We ended up having an awesome time and had a afternoon picnic amongst all the poop.
