    However, the owners are never there so you need to call them at all times which is very inconvenient for you...

    We spent last night at a quaint hotel (80 plus years old with rooms over the bar and restuarent) in Martinborough because there was no rooms left in Wellington, the State Capital, because the World Cup of Cricket matches were there this weekend. Martinborough is about 1.5 hours from Wellington and we had a 8:30 AM ferry to catch there. Accordingly, we had to get up at 4:30 AM (I thought we were ...

    ... down hill, but as we were informed, the next hill starts at the bottom of this one, and there is a next after that. We had areas of shade but when they passed it was hot. We had not expected it to be quite so summery although a shop keeper in Nelson had commented that it was their warmest summer for a long time. Large sections of the ride find us surrounded by plantation pines. At one drink stop we notice a worker on a tractor ...

    Lunch eaten and rain jackets on, we continue paddling around the island. As we reach we western side of the island we reach a seal colony.

The sea on this side of the island has large swells though. Wave after wave and swell after swell we are ...

    ... that mountain top is worth the pain it took to get there. Plus on the way we saw some goats and a few deer! Going to bed tired; the body needs rest. Tomorrow's similar adventures are not too far away. 4/4/14 Our bodies struggle to move in the morning, and leaving the hut is a large task. But we must move on; we do not have any food to spare for a day of rest. After pumping my body with 4 liters of water last night, my body handles the start of the track well. ...

    ... with photos, accounts etc. Number of residents peaked at about 1500, now there's 8 but the mine was worked from 1880 to 1967, so some families lived there for 2 generations. We had a coffee in the van looking over the view to the sea as the cloud lowered and the drizzly rain started, then back down the hairpin after hairpin road descent, at least the roads are wide here so not like going through some of the European Alp roads. Then driving up the Buller river valley ...
