New Zealand in July Part 3

 To finish off our time in NZ we visited parts of the ares I haven't been to - north of Nelson - we stayed at Motueka for a couple of nights

 Loved the coast line - the weather was a little bleak but who cares?

 busy little chappies in the bush

 On our way to Westport we called in at Lyle

Ian went over the swingy bridge but not for me

 Drove south of Westport - I do love the west coast beaches north or south

 Too many choices for photos

 Pancake Rocks - I have never been there - fabulous - Punakaiki

 DOC have done the most fabulous job here

 The intrepid traveller

 Made our way to Reefton - the town of lights - Reefton was the first place in the Southern Hemisphere to have electricity - we stayed at this motel and because they were full, we got the entire top floor

 Went to visit Waiuta - Ian's great uncles were gold miners here

 Left Reefton and made our way over the Rahu Saddle - look at the snow! No wonder it was cold

 Made our way to Lake Rotoiti and arrived at a perfect moment

Last day in wonderful Wellie before flying back to Perth via Auckland. Caught up with Ken and Raylene for lunch. Great time was had - what's next on the agenda?
