Wednesday morning was a fairly late start. It was very nice to be in a room without snorers for a couple of nights! We gave our new friend a lift down to the West coast then turned north. As on the Stray bus the West coast is simply stunning, forest clad mountains on one side and rugged coast on the other. We stopped a few times to admire the view & pick up more fuel & food but our main stops were again the Pancake Rocks & the Capefoulwind Seal colony. It amused me that we also passed 2 Stray buses on the way although the only driver I saw wasn't one I knew. We then headed inland from Westport & followed Buller's Gorge up to a lovely little farmstay hostel the other side of Murchison (Hu Ha Bikepackers) where we are the only guests. Tired after a full day of driving we are trying to decide which bits of Abel Tasman to see & whether to pop up to Goldern Bay first...
