      ... mountains with their winding, hairpin roads.

      Our first proper stop was at Hokitiki. A small town, like many on the west coast an old mining town. The mining has long gone and the town is fading, surviving mainly through the tourist trail heading up the coast. We parked up by the beach, put the kettle on in the camper to have a cuppa. The beach is strewn with driftwood, ranging from whole trees to small branches, it's everywhere. But someone has put it to good ...

Due to our physical exhaustion, our minimal food supply, and for ...

      ... out onto the river & valley, he provides good company, great fishing stories, a gourmet dinner nightly, a full breakfast every morning and a lunch to take with you for your day of fishing. Arriving in the evening of the 22nd, we had time for a quick shower before dinner. There were two other couples at the lodge that evening & the next. Before dinner, we were treated to a special serenade by one of the guests, Neil, a visiting ...
