Where I stayed
Leith Valley Touring Park
We could have stayed at Cannibal Bay for ages but we had now had our fill of sea lions (we hadn’t been eating them if that is what you’re thinking), then decided to head off in search of some Elephant seals at Nugget Point. This was a stunning, stunning place with a great walk up to the lighthouse with cliffs on both sides and seal colonies underneath. We were both mesmerised by the views and abundant wildlife.
We drove on to Kaka Point somewhere we had decided to stay overnight but the Catlins doesn’t have a cash machine after Invercargill so we had no money and no freecamping options, we therefore had to continue the drive to get cash and petrol. By this stage we were only about 100km from Dunedin so headed onwards despite our vow to slow down. We reached Dunedin and headed for the I-site to find out about free camping but they were very strict. I didn’t mind paying for one night so Erica could wash her hair, I could have a shower and we could buy some wifi time to ring our parents and publish the blog and photos (as it turned out Erica hadn’t done any of the blog for the last few days since (she took over) nor chosen any photo’s so neither of us had a shower, no hair wash, just make two phone calls and write the blog and upload photo’s etc. If she doesn’t pull her finger out and make some effort with something soon, she will be sent back (and to think we called the Irish lazy).
Anyway my early night was actually an 11pm’er after being handed the laptop at 10pm to do another two days. Erica edit: Bit exaggerated, and some ones in a mood.......oooooohhhhh!
