    ... on Sunday morning Margaret and Vince had to leave and we spent the afternoon sitting outside, reading and relaxing in the hot sunshine. We decided we really had to brave the water – couldn't let the Kiwi's get away with it, we are brave Brits! We waited until the tide had come up over the hot sand and in we went.

    ... was Mt Egmont / Taranaki, behind us the snowy summit of Mt Ruapehu. It was a glorious evening, we were so lucky and so glad that we made the effort. We spent a pretty cold night up there – the temperature dropped to around freezing during the night but we were warm enough in Bertie.

    ... eaten we head off on our way again next big place Kaikoura where we first saw Seals, we decided not to stop again so carried on past, in the town itself we stopped in New World to buy some steak for dinner that evening as we hadn't seen any good meat in Pak'n'Save. Meat purchased, a quick look at emails via the free wifi they have in their stores and it was back on the road again - the weather still amazing which looked perfect for our few days ahead in the van!
