... had a four-wheel drive - as there was a wide and rather deep-looking ford to cross. We spent a night at the lower camp site – just us and one other bus. Unfortunately we couldn't get to beach without braving the deep and fast running river, so the next day we moved to the upper site (with the other bus).

Basically this is the region that makes the wine that got us excited about drinking wine in New Zealand. As we drove into the vines, we spotted a vineyard that we wanted to go to, so we pulled a U-turn and as we did, we (almost) literally ran into one of my old coworkers from Queenstown! Only in a country this small does this type of thing happen. We stopped by ...
