    ... a $9 campsite with a TV and a pool table.

    Next stop was Farewell Spit at the very top of the South Island. It took us nearly all day to drive there. We walked along Wharaniki beach, which is so windy that we could hardly open our eyes for flying sand. It ended up in our shoes, ears, teeth, everywhere! Another stop was the Pupu Springs, the largest cold water springs in the southern hemisphere and Harewood ...

    ... were ... many seals. Grown up ones and little babys. Great to see them from the water perspectiv. Normaly you just see them from land but now we saw them quite close from the waterside. Even some were jumping in the water and swimming quite close to us. What a great experience. After a long time of watching we decided to continue as we had 4 hours walking as well on our dayplan.

So we paid our $5 each and, after about 20 minutes of waiting for just the right conditions (no one else on the thing) I shuffled across right behind Colin keeping my eyes firmly fixed on the back of his sweatshirt - not looking down, up ...

    Well, if we'd known more precisely what today entailed, we probably wouldn't have done it. So thank goodness we didn't know because we had a physically exhausting but utterly brilliant day. After an early get up we drove for an hour plus to Marahau on the edge of the Abel Tasman National Park in the north west corner of South Island. From there we took a 20 minute fast water taxi to Onetahuti Bay in the heart of the marine reserve where we embarked on the first stage of ...

    ... knees.

    As it turns out, this is about right, but the bottom of the lagoon is covered in very sharp shells and there is also a stretch of rather sticky mud, so we accomplish the crossing in a mixture of trainers, flip-flops and bare feet. Walking sticks also help. This is a bit of an ADVENTURE!

    When we arrive on the other side, we need quite a few minutes to remove the sticky mud, sand and other detritus from the crossing. But there ...
