Wildlife much improved.... Tui, Bellbird, Fantail, Pukeko, Weka, cormorants, garnets and even an Albatross!
We drove from Picton via Nelson to Abel Tasman arriving in beautiful sunshine with calm seas. Next day we took a water taxi to walk a section of the coastal track. An uneventful taxi ride via a Cormorant colony and more nz fur seals to a stunning but deserted beach. The walk through the bush was really interesting, no noise but birds and the sea.... the wind was whipping up and some patchy showers but under the trees and tree ferns it didn't matter.
Taxi ride back was more eventful but more of that next time. Wifi very patchy... this is attempt five or six to blog, so pics and more of our adventure next time...
Travel tales for those of you left back home... as we take a month long trip to the Island of the long white cloud.... New Zealand. Last visited in 2009 - can't wait to get back and explore more of this beautiful place! It may be the start of winter in the UK but it will be the start of spring on the other side of the world!... full info
