On the Buller River...

And just trying to decide whether to do Jetboating, or to head up further to Abel Tasmin National park to go kayaking. I think we're heading in the later direction.

We arrived here on saturday and picked up our little camper van (Robbie - alas because there is a picture of Robbie Williams on the side of it....Take That-a-licious) and headed out to the west coast. Unfortunately some bad curry from Christchurch caught up with us and laid Stian out flat until today, and even left me a little queezy. But today we're back on the road and have just one minute left before my time on the internet runs out, so we're off and will blog later, after we get wet somewhere!

I LOVE your blog and right now am reveling in the memory of our trip to NZ several years ago. Abel Tasmin was very special, exquisitely beautiful. The kayaking was terrific. We loved the little camper van that we rented, thoroughly enjoying protection from both sand flies and occasional torrential downpours. It was so snug!

How is your weather? Have you run into this little poem yet?

It rained and rained and rained
The average fall was well maintained
And when the tracks were simple bogs,
It started raining cats and dogs.
After a drought of half an hour
We had a most refreshing shower.
And then the most curious thing of all--
A gentle rain began to fall.
Next day but one was fairly dry,
Save for one deluge from the sky
Which wetted the party to the skin
And then at last the Rain set in!
