Tidy room. Peculiar way to monitor and limit electricity use. All 3 outlets in the room are run through a single timer . You are required to push the switch every 30 minutes. No overnight charging of electronics.

... we couldn’t see the sign for the track out until we were almost on top of it. I’d recommend walking to the middle of the beach and then looking up to the dunes for the big orange arrow and the sign to the car park.

We got back to the car park at 11 AM and made it to Waipupu Springs at noon. It took us 20 min to walk around the springs…in the rain. Nothing terrible but just enough to be annoying and hamper the view. The path/boardwalk along ...

... aboard for the one and a half hour journey back to Kaiteriteri. It was very interesting for Barbara to see the coast line along which she had walked from the sea. The boats that Wilson's uses function like buses along the coast picking up not only their walkers and kayakers but also others who have booked so that can spend time in the bays along the coasts without walking to them. They are catamarans and as there are no jetties built they have hydraulically ...

... his feet in the water! Here in Golden Bay we've experienced the sunniest and warmest weather, so if we're going to swim anywhere it's going to be here. It's actually been gloriously sunny and the temperatures in the mid to high 60's (we're out of the peak summer months so it's a bit cooler ...

Abel Tasman Coastal Track

... would take a water taxi back to the start. The winding track took us in and out of several little bays and coves. It was an excellent walk with amazing views almost the entire way. Rocky cliffs and granite outcrops,
coastal forest with trickling streams and creeks, and golden beaches against the bluest water I’ve ever laid eyes upon. This water is so blue it almost looks artificial. It’s bluer than you could ever imagine. Mother ...
