    The rain we heard during the night had just about gone off when we left Westport at 8.30 am. When I gave back the key the host said that it was likely to be poor weather all down the coast, almost all day in fact. As this is meant to be one of the most scenic drives in the country, it was even more disappointing to find that slightly further down …

    ... that we drove through just after leaving Wanaka. Suffice it to say that the view from the edge of Lake Hawea was utterly preposterous: too good to be true. A little way into the drive, we pulled over by a river, where Kori tentatively cut the back section of Ben's hair that Crazy Jane missed the other week. There was a wind blowing along the river course so Ben had to redampen his hair using river water ...

    ... and another high five!

    The next day’s adventure was decided on purely by chance. At a small town called Twizel (I was here 10 years ago and it hasn’t changed a bit, even the same Fish & Chip shop is there) I was looking at some postcards and one picture in particular jumped out. It was of Pinnacle like rock formations called Clay Cliffs that certainly didn’t fit with the ...

    ... there was another route to the coast we could take and took it. It's rare here where you have an alternative route since there really aren't that many roads and highways and they are almost all 2 lanes. The roads are good but we can't believe how many one-lane bridges there are here! Pay attention to who is supposed to yield, or woe to you.

    I suppose it is sparsely populated here on the south island and bridges are ...
