We raced all day across the top of NZ alongside the beautiful blue Ocean and Seal colonies to get to Kaikoura as we feared that Lou's ultimate dream would be fully booked. We arrived early pm and were lucky to get places the following day but there was a weather warnign so all was not 100%. We walked the scenic cliff top walk in strong winds up and down cliffs and past stupid cows to South Bay and camped that night in a top 10 holiday park against offence - they really are over priced compared to the lovely Kiwi parks. We met a lovely couple and chatted the night away in the kitchen - hey we know how to live - praying for the torrential rain to stop!!!!
