Before driving further north we stopped for some seaside backgammon (btw Mario's in the lead, a little too long for my liking) and also to feast on some "Lonely Planet recommended" (I'm so ashamed!) crayfish, prawns and paua (aka abalone aka perlemoen) fritters from a seaside mobile vendor. Yummy!
That night we found a handy picnic area with portaloo for a spot of freedom camping somewhere near Blenheim. It wasn't long before we were joined by 5 other vans, including one of those converted bus (yes, bus!) thingy-me-bobs with separate lounge, dining room and a huge satellite dish! We befriended and fed two local chicks who were trying to cross the road so, of course, we had to ask why?
