I stayed overnight at Tokaanu and enjoyed a soak in the thermal pools. Little changed from when I was a kid. We used to have annual holidays at Turangi. Us two kids would play most of the day somewhere beside the river, making fairy gardens in the black sand with river stones and pumice and whatever else we could find. The smell of the autumn foliage brings it all back. "One last cast," Lou would say, and we knew that meant another hour or so before we would be leaving.
