Howdy, Sam,

The village of Omapere is quite a ways (prob'ly 30 miles? -- near the mouth of the Hokianga Harbour on the western coast) from Okaihau, but Lake Omapere is only about two miles from Okaihau, both up on the central plateau between the Hokianga and the Bay of Islands.

BTW, has anyone included Merle Haggard's great train song, "Miners' Silver Ghost"?

Warm rgds from NZ.
