Which was all very nice, especially the chocolate one, they always say it has the chocolate taste to it with dark beers, but this time you could actually taste it, and Ed doesn't like dark stuff and he liked it. So after that we went for another walk around the shops to eventually head back home. We took a stop off in the whiskey factory over the road too, ...

Dining up the coast

... experience. Riverstone is owned and run by Bevan Smith - a noted Kiwi chef - and his wife. They moved back to NZ to raise their family, and opened a restaurant/shop on their family land. The focus is on locally produced food, served in a family friendly restaurant. Great playground out back, in amongst the gardens teeming with fresh produce.

... to sea before dawn every day and don't return until about six in the evening (a long day). There were over 200 nest boxes all within the colony grounds, some of which had viewing tunnels and so we got to see 4, very still, blue penguins. Our desire to see masses of penguins has yet to be satiated. ...

    Lucked out at this hostel as there was only me and one other lady in our 4 share. It was great for 2 but might have been small with more. Slept great. Kitchen small too but had some nice picnic tables outside to eat. Very convenient to Botannical Gradens behind...which were VERY nice and short walk to bus station...maybe 10 minutes.
