Friday 20 March – back to Gisborne

We decided to spend another day and night in Gisborne, as our first night had been so rushed.

The two hour ride back to Gisborne along the Matawai Gorge was a little more relaxed this time. We even stopped to admire the Tauranga bridge, about a 10 minute walk from the road.

We spent a little time riding around and exploring Gisborne (about 34km in all). The bike ride along the foreshore was the best.

We also found the Sunshine Brewery, and enjoyed some good craft beer and pizza there.

We ate out again in the evening – treating ourselves. The restaurants were pretty empty and there were already directives out that we should do “social distancing”. We were all washing our hands conscientiously before we ate. However, we didn’t imagine that we would be in total COVID-19 level 4 lock down less than a week later.
