... area, also making a point to stop at the odd lookout for the views. The first picnic stop we came to, thankfully we didn't get straight out of Eggy; within about 30 seconds the car was surrounded by a small swarm of wasps! They clearly didn't want us to eat our lunch there! We stopped about 10 minutes up the road, and had a nice lunch looking out over a valley. After lunch, we made our way to the beach camp in Punakaiki where we ...

The Punakaiki Blowholes and Pancake Rocks were our next stop, which ...
... br> Before Hanmer Springs we were in Murchison for a couple of days- That was to be Rip's fly fishing opportunity, but not to be. The fishing season is just starting, and because their spring here has been very wet, and the rivers are too high for fishing yet.... instead we went on a hike up one of the mountains which provided a great view of the valley and the 4 rivers that intersect here in Murchison. I am sure that the fishing here would be wonderful as the rivers ...
