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

    We spent a couple days in Hanmer Springs. A small little resort town with beautiful scenery with many things to do, but for dollars, sooo we decided to do some natural and FREE bush walks and hiking up to some lookouts! Spent some time eating some ice cream in the park and enjoying a little outside market that went on during the afternoon! Really relaxing and beautiful. After a couple of glasses of wine Adam ...

    ... we saw Cormorants, Canadian Geese (of all things), Oystercatchers, and Penguins. We had a chance to paddle into a large cave as well which Ryan thought was pretty awesome. Paddling back down the bay to the farm, we were able to see some of the White Flippered on the rocks.

    Both evenings we were able to join in on a guided tour to see the penguins make their way onto land from their day at the ocean as well as see some of the breeding pairs and their new ...

    ... hummus and of course, Afghan biscuits for pudding. Then alcohol. David Milnes continued to remind me that he was having a really good time! Tonight we heard the scariest animal noise snarl/growl/screech, three times, right outside the van, even David was nervous. We were in the middle of nowhere, no other vans about so no idea what it was. P.S. 20/10/14 - We have found out that the noise was probably a ...

    ... So we headed for Springs Junction and a little DOC campsite called Marble Hill. We got to Marble Hill fairly early and enjoyed reading in the sun a bit and just relaxing, nestled in between several mountains. It was a lovely site, although still a lot of sandflies around. The toilets were less nice but that's what you get sometimes... The morning mist and dew were incredibly beautiful. And on we went to Hanmer Springs, a small tourist town ...

    We had been trying to decide how best to use our remaining 4 days in the south island before our ferry to the north island. Kaikoura was a must as it where you can see whales, dolphins and seals, we might need two days there, and it is a days drive from Franz Joseph back over to the east coast just north of Christchurch. That leaves one day which we decided to spend somewhere near to the ferry port. With that finalised and breakfast completed it was back on the road. We had to ...
