Where I stayed
Don't mind us, just passing through...
Willie Nelson's classic)
We started feeling twitchy having pressed pause on our travels for 4
whole nights but our reward was glorious weather. As I punched the air
and shouted "Kap aan, driver!" one more time Mario whispered: "I hope
Mr T doesn't feel neglected"
The next stop of note was Hokitika. A small, funky town with the
highest number of greenstone galleries per capita. The highlights for
us were the local chippy that we frequented for 3 consecutive days and
the driftwood-strewn beach where we gathered said wood. We also
rounded up a few beachbum friends to accompany Stoney on the dashboard
but alas, no pretty Jade for him.
The sea was mesmerising - the strange muffled sound and huge, wild
waves that appeared near enough to crash into us. But I'm happy (and
alive!) to report that thanks to a massive dip in the sand, it didn't.
