      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.

      ... sea and mountain. Our shack in the rainforest was part of a small set up of several exotic individualistic houses, plus main house with lounge and kitchen, and attached staff quarters. A guy from Uruguay was managing it. Would there be an another Uruguayan in N Z?. Anyway he said that his was such a small country he probably would know any fellow countryman currently in NZ. We found our lovely quirky little hut down a path lost in the jungle ...

      Fortunately, the rain stopped as we walked round, and the rough sea made the blowholes particularly spectacular. The limestone rocks have weathered to give them a layered appearance like a stack of pancakes and very photogenic with their garnish of lush foliage.
