|Farewell view of South Island from the ferry|
|Home for one night|
The campsite has a definite end-of-season feel to it, with only a couple of caravans in residence, so the arrival of a Britz campervan at about 5.00pm made us look up; we were more than a little surprised and delighted to see that it was Heidi and Peter. Quite by chance they'd stumbled upon the very same camp, having spent the morning back in Wellington, quite unaware that we'd be here. So another sociable evening followed that's done nothing for our 'must drink less' intentions!
Graham was allowed to indulge his boy scout tendencies and he built a very decent bonfire which we sat around as the sky cleared to provide a stunning star show and the dew fell heavily on the grass around us.
