Today, I decided I'll go south from Alofi since I went north yesterday. I rode to Avatele (the t is pronounced like an s), about 11km along the shore. There were quite a few interesting sites on the way including a large active quarry that the road goes through just outside of Alofi. I passed by Clayton's Bar and what is supposedly a local bar is South Alofi, which looks kind of deserted, but was pretty large and maybe a cool place to hang out. There was also the site of the former hospital, now moved inland after it blew down in a cyclone - twice.
