Yesterday we went and saw the amazing pancake rocks where the sea was sooo incredibly powerful, the blow hole was a bit of a let down, as it wasnt blowing due to a low tide. We watched the water swirling around and crashing against the massive rocks whcih was really cool. We then were told that the road which we wanted to take North to Nelson was closed -ahhhh so we had to head back to Greymouth and go the longer way around - i think it was because of a land slide - not suprised actually as the roads here are unbleievable - windy as hell and hair pin bends galore!
So after a long drive we arrived in Nelson and camped for the night. Today we headed off into the sunshine towards Takaka north west of nelson - we hadnt seen roads like this before, it was totally curvy for like 100 km!!! The van made it though, but developed a slow puncture - chris used his car mechanic skills to change it - the jack was tiny - but worked!!! We had a look around some of the beaches and then have headed back towards nelson, pauing at motueka for internet.
Planing a trip to the vineyards tomorrow maybe - there are some for sale - might invest hahahaahah.
No photos we are afraid as they wont load up today - will try again later!
Hope everyone is ok at home, not heard of some of you for a long time! ! ! ! ! Are you still out there?!?!?
