Vandaag naar Punakaiki gereden ongeveer 240 Km.
Onderweg 2 tracks gelopen in de buurt van het dorp.
De Pancake Rocks and Blowholes zijn daar erg mooi.
Deze rotsformaties zijn ontstaan door erosie van water en wind.
Diverse modellen gefotografeerd.
Op een rots was een stern zijn jong aan het voeren.
Morgen gaan we naar het oosten.

Jen and Keren woke up early to go for a run and pick up food for the fry up we were cooking for our host. We ate and said thank you and goodbye, then hit the road again. We detoured to Hokitika Gorge before we left the town, and it was absolutely pouring! We've had nothing but rainy weather so far! The gorge was cool though, a flowing river surrounded by rocks and there was a rope bridge over it that we could walk over. On the way we passed a fallen tree that had ...
