      Thank you Catherine for recommending we stay in Golden Bay, a beautiful if somewhat windy stretch of beach. First stop coffee overlooking the bay from the base of Farewell Spit, before embarking on a walk as far along the Spit as is permitted. Walked along the inner beach first then crossed to the Ocean Beach. I am running out ...

      We left Collingwood and returned to Takaka to prepare for the Heaphy. On the way we stopped at the Waikoropupu Springs known locally as the Pupu Springs. They discharge 14,000 litres per second and are the largest fresh water springs in New Zealand, the largest cold water springs in the southern hemisphere and the clearest water measured. Apparently you can see 63 metres underwater! We arrived at the motel, and went shopping for our delightful freeze dried meals for 5 days and 4 ...

Which part of the film did this appear in?? We can't ...

      ... did several pictures of course, we stopped to look at the river below. It has this beautiful milky-blue colour that is caused by the melted glacier that has rock dust and minerals in it that give the river its colour. We proceeded to the rocks on the other side of the river where we made some more pictures (obviously) for you to (hopefully) enjoy.

      Next stop was Hokitika town where we stocked upon some ...

      8:20 - Have breakfast and clean the house.

      As the children were on a gluten free diet (as with most of the population of Golden Bay), Deborah did the majority of the cooking. Before the kids got home from school, we had time to explore our surroundings and we got two days off per week. We decided to hitchhike. As we walked down the road, with our thumbs sticking out, we heard someone ...
