    This is a number of bungalows set back from the highway. They are quite quirky, but basic. OK for one night.

    ... we parked on the side of the road and took off down the path to see the famous Pancake Rocks. They were just as cool as I remember and Mark and I had a blast making corny jokes about syrup and taking selfies. We still had a bit of a drive to get to Westport and I had a few more stops up my sleeve, so we didn't linger too long at the pancake rocks. A few minutes outside of Punakaiki is Punakaiki Cavern, an unplanned stop, but we can never pass up a good caving experience. ...

Thankfully, the second half of the four hour ferry ride was far smoother and we were able to sit back and enjoy the rest of the journey.

    ... them at all. It was then back on the bus for our journey to a cafe in Murchison which happened to be exactly the same place I'd stopped at with Julie and Michael on the way to Hanmer Springs.

    Leaving Franz Josef the grey clouds rolled in and the rain that had been looming on our weather apps descended. We didn't really have too much of a plan for the rest of our time in NZ and the ever looming prospect of selling Blondini was hovering over us. With three days of torrential rain forecast and nowhere to run and hide we decided to slow down our pace and just take some time out on the west coast. We had a brief overnight stay ...

    ... below. We went on a short bushwalk then returned on the 160m long zipwire which was fun!

    The road continued beside the Buller river almost to the coast. The skies got greyer and the heavens opened. The rain cleared as we reached the coast and we shortly found our campsite at Punakaiki, right by the beach.
