We had intended to have a trip up to the Golden Bay area at the north of the South Island. But fiercesome storms washed out some of the roads and made it impossible. Some communities were having to be re-supplied by boat for several weeks.
Heading south was a more realistic option and we picked out some places we had not been to before. It was a last trip before the camper-truck (BD2) went in for major surgery.
