The first day of the Te Araroa trail, South Island, SOBO.
The second day, the day the weather turned nice and I met Shai and Alan.
The day I stuck around, sunburnt - Fish 'n Chips Deluxe
The day ahead gave the highest climb on the Queen Charlotte track (Shamrock Ridge) and after that just up and down all the way to Anakiwa.
Painful shoulders and feet, we left the morning at 9.00 for a roadwalk leg that wouldn't be too hard, end up by taking a bus in Havelock to Nelson to do some resupplying for the next days (the Richmond Ranges).
Bye bye, Anakiwa…
