    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 ...

    ... skirts' that wrap around the seat to prevent waves flooding the kayak.

    The tide is out, which means the sea is a long way from the village, too far to carry a kayak. So our trainer puts the kayak on a trailer and tows it with a tractor down to and across the beach.

    ... 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.

    Kia Ora, folks!

    It's my turn to tell you about our time in St Arnaud, a small alpine village west of the mountains of the St Arnaud Range and on Lake Rotoiti (which we mis-pronounced "Rotie-Oatey"). We stayed at the Travers-Sabine Lodge, the polar opposite of our awful accommodation at Camp Elsdon. We had a lovely room, with a decent kitchen and dining room, and 3 different lounge rooms for the guests to ...
