We detoured to Bluff - the furthest south town in NZ and took photographs before giving a Swiss/Austrian couple a lift back to their car on a hilly viewpoint with extensive and windy views over to Stuart Island. Back to Invercargill then took the scenic route along the coast through the Caitlins Once we had rejoined the main route we sped on stopping to view the waves crash in at a remote coastal viewpoint. Met our first serious flock of sheep on the road. The farmer indicated for us to pass but this was very difficult because every time a gap appeared I tried to speed through but the sheep ahead just quickened ahead of me to box me in again. Eventually we got through. We ended the day at Te Anau booking into a comfy backpacker hostel/motel where we shared the kitchen and bathroom with a slightly older Canadian couple (he of Welsh origin and retaining a strong accent despite having emigrated to Canada in the early sixties). Both very easy and affable.
