    The bed was comfortable. The spa a bit manky, but we tubbed in it anyway. The open fire was comforting.

    Today has been very relaxed. We all had a lie in at the house in Hanmer Springs, before heading out to a cafe for a late breakfast. I think this was the busiest cafe in the whole of NZ as we were waiting for an awfully long time. After finally getting our food we decided that it would be a nice idea to drive back to St Arnaud along the track that Graham had biked the previous day.

    We got to the Ultimate Descent's HQ a bit early, luckily there was a cafe right next door where we got some much needed coffee and breakfast. Because there were 6 of us we got our own boat. With two GoPro's on our boat we were bound to get some amazing footage. ( Later I found out my camera was pointed at the sky) But Kalah got some amazing videos.

    ... amazing birthday ever, as she had to work on her actual birthday and she wasn't too impressed when the bosses of the lodge came in for a meal in the evening, and they are the people who could have covered her shifts! Laura was very grateful for all her presents as they definitely cheered her up!

    We have just one week and a half to go!! On the 4th of March we will begin our trip, by travelling 4 hours back to Akaroa to see Bob and Marilyn ...

    ... any free campsites nearby, so just chanced it by parking up somewhere away from the main road. We saw a camper van parked there, so we thought we'd be ok parking up there too. It was an added touch to find out that there were some public toilets in the vicinity.

    An unexpected visitor!

    So after finding our spot for the night we started preparing our dinner and got our little camp stove out next to the car. If anyone was passing us while we were cooking ...
