New Zealand 2007 
                                    Day Twenty-Seven  Dargaville April 09
                                            Long 6 hour drive day past Auckland to Kauri Coast.  Just outside of departing Rotorua was
                                            the steel art town of Tirau - Most signs, including the town sign, was made of painted and 
                                            corrugated steel sheets.  Even two buildings were shaped like a dog and sheep.
                                            Checked into the Sunset Lodge located at Baylys Beach.  Walks on the beach was shorten due 
                                            to sunshine filled rain.  The Lodge has a guest area with large LCD screen and full bar.
                                            Dinner after the spectacular sunset from the room balcony was at Funky Fish restaurant -
                                            another chance for local venison steak (Maybe it should be the Funky Deer restaurant).
                                            However, large paper mache fish heads created by a local school were brightly colored
                                            and provided the funky interior trim.
