... to the South island. Rainy Travel Days The next two days pretty much turned out to be travel days because of a bit more bad weather. We did stop to spot seals at Cape Foulwind, (not sure if the name has something to do with the seals or not?!), on our way to the port town of Westport. Westport is probably best known however for gold. There was a gold-rush here when gold was first discovered in 1858, although gold mining is now long gone. To banish the bad weather we had ...

... we have ever encountered, amid the bones there were 5 dogs (one in a wrecked car), countless chickens, goats and ducks - yet another example of how Stay really does take you to places you would otherwise just pass by.

... a lovely day of sightseeing, it rained. And rained. And rained some more. All this rain was peppered with thunder and lightning. This went on for the entire night and into the morning. When we woke up around 6 a.m. to see if the weather was good to do our 8-hour hike, it was still coming down. The rain stopped around 2 p.m. but then returned a few hours later. It was a nice day to just relax!

Look for our next post!

At the highest point of our trek we were all emerging from a crevasse when we heard an almighty BOOM! This was no man made noise, this was ...

... stop at Clay Cliffs.

The beauty about these rock formations is they are totally hidden from the main road. We had to drive 4kms down a dusty dirt track to get there and even when we parked up they were not in view. As we walked and rounded the first corner we saw some spikey rocks towering above us but didn’t recognise them as the picture on the postcard. Another couple of hundred meters and then ...
