    ... almost always occurs. We were on the road, miraculously, on time at 8 am on Friday as we had a 6.5 hour drive to dinner at the Mussel Inn in Onekaka with a few stops in between. Our first stop was at Buller Gorge to walk across New Zealand's longest swingbridge suspended over the Buller River. Once we reached the other side, there were a few walking tracks we explored and found an incredibly cool rock beach to take photos of the crystal clear, ...

    Alpine lakes, and the yankee double take

    ... 5 day hike but changed my mind after learning about the incoming weather system from auss. (the outback gets me again.) So settled for a day hike.

    The weather was amazing, not a cloud in the sky, and I set out up mount Robert. The beginning was a LOT of step switchbacks up to the top, after a view of the lower lakes near the bottom and some alpine shrubbery the slope gave way to rocks ...

    Up early breakfast, then walk on beach before setting off back up Takaka Hill. It didn't seem so bad this time. The uphill approach was more gentle than the uphill side yesterday.

There were several good views of the river and one spectacular Lookout at Hope Saddle near Tapawaera. ...

Fra s'est baigne tres rapidement et nous sommes retournes a la voiture en courant. Pas etonnant qu'il n'y est personne autour de ce lac. Nous pensions avoir trouve l'endroit parfait ;)

    A pretty big hole!

    Last night’s DOC campsite proved a good choice, despite it
    being really high up and therefore freezing cold again (such a good job we have
    decent down sleeping bags with us!), there turned out to be a load of walks
    going from the campsite. One of the main ‘attractions’ in this area is Harwoods
    Hole which we had no idea about as there was no mention in our guidebook and no
    signposting at all, except for a safety warning to cavers ...
