We have arrived at Okarito

Had a great flight over - Ian seemed to manage to sleep   allthe way- got into Auckland at 5.20am and then flew to Christchurch - you go through as an international flyer and do your customs stuff in ChCh. Then we picked up our car, went shopping and drove over. The weather in Canterbury was good and sunny but it starting raining and closed in once we hit the mountains.Not as much snow as I expected but it was a lovely drive. Shopped some more in Hokitika - perishables - and got here about 5.30. Now the fire is lit, the cds are playing, the wine is poured and the local cheeses are being tasted. What more could you ask for? I am settling in with PD James. Who knows what tomorrow will bring? Piccies tomorrow especially the kea or two we came across.
