It was an early morning start today when we rose at 5.30 to be on our way to the ferry for 6.30,
although it didn't leave till 8.30. The last check in was meant to be 7.30 and Hughie was taking no chances!

... in a carpark in Motueka as Fridi and I waited to meet with Amelie, and in Motueka it remained until just a few days ago I returned and picked it up from a local petrol station. I was much-aggrieved by its loss, and am reflectively very happy to have it back! So overall the Abel Tasman trek was visually incredible, and it was great to spend time with Amelie; long days simply walking and talking and in the evenings, much-appreciated hot food, tea and ...
