on the water - er, road....

Posted by Mary |

We got back to Te Anau last night after an amazing 2-day kayaking trip on one of the fiord. I just like saying fiord. Try it - fiord, fiord, fiord!!! The weather was a bit rough, so we couldn't camp overnight beside the fiord, but we still got two days of paddling in. I'm sore, but it was worth it!

We're currently checking e-mail and updating the blog (well, Tom is checking sports scores on ESPN) before we head out again. We plan to cruise through Queenstown as quickly as possible and find ourselves a place to stay somewhere between here and Punakaiki. It should be two great days of driving, as we're heading up the West Coast most of the way. Mountains today, beaches tomorrow.
