Day 14. After 2 days of R & R at Rangiwahia it was time to move on. Don and Pamela had to head home today because of commitments this coming week .An interim decision had been made to check out the Chelmsford Hotel but upon arrival and checking out the site it was not to everybody’s liking. Peter and Elaine opted to carry on to Palmerston North Motor Camp and the remaining 3 of us headed off to Ashhurst Domain.
Once again the scenery en route was spectacular and coming closer to the Manawatu Gorge, the power generating wind farms were clearly visible. Arriving at the domain we found the place very busy with plenty of people taking advantage of another blistering hot day. The camping area is right at the rear of the park where we found ourselves the only occupants. This has since changed with other arrivals later in the afternoon.
The domain is well set up with electric power supply, water, rubbish, dump station and showers ($2). There are walkways we have yet to investigate over the next day or so.
