Day 199 The moon simply took the sun's place last night, moving from one horizon to the other and brightly lighting up our campsite all night. Ben got up when it was nearing setting. The light in the East was brightening and the stars were beginning to become hard to see as dawn approached. Because we went to bed so early last night and the clocks went back in New Zealand during the night, Ben was wide awake by 5.45. He went and sat in the 'lounge' (a brightly lit, fairly ...
... mid-70s and mostly sunny.
The ferry was about 20-30 minutes with occasional stops up the coast. When we finally arrived at Bark Bay we disembarked the boat from the front (thankfully as our guide went off the back into the freezing water!) and waited to get all geared up.

... 11km (~2 1/2hrs) inland in the morning followed by another 6km in the afternoon to reach Awaroa Hut, which can only be reached at low tide by wading across the estuary - very refreshing on hot, tired feet. Day 3 was an easy 12km walk to Bark Bay hut, which we had reached by 1pm and so had plenty of time to wade up Waterfall creek and wallow in the sea. On Day 4, the weather - which had up til now been impeccable - started to turn, although the drizzle ...
