    I didn't want to leave. It was too beautiful. But all good things... We went in to town to invest in some gifts for the kiddies that we'd seen in a shop window the night before.

    This morning we woke up to a cloudy Kaikoura. Mum went to the bakery and the man there said the rains were coming lucky we are leaving this morning feels like we are chasing the sun everytime we leave somewhere it rains.

    We found a nice little river crossing for brunch. Beside it was a plaque. This commemorates the opening of the first Wheeled Vehicle route into Kaikoura 5.03.1887.

    On March 5th, a procession set out from Waiau to make the first journey over the barely completed road.

    ... sulphur pools at various levels and temperatures, then clear freshwater pools all interlinked and flowing into each other, a lazy river, aqua therapy pools with jets pummelling you in all sorts of places, Scott had to drag me out of that one! All surrounded by big rocks, trees and plants, brilliant - in fact so brilliant we have booked a third night here in our lovely hotel, the Alpine Garden.
