Spent the morning at cousin Peter’s place readying the van for the next stage of the journey.
On the way west we stopped off at a 1000 acre block Peter has 20% shares in that is mostly under pine trees.
We tramped to the top of a mountain to see them – this taken half way up after we’d driven 2/3 way up to here. The hike darn near killed Norma, and I wasn’t much better.
Said goodbye to Peter and Steph and headed west through Havelock (scene of the Mussel Festival of Saturday)
We stopped for the night beside a beautiful stream – this taken from the van.
