On the way to Hokitika, we passed near to a white heron reserve and just caught a glimpse of two or three in the trees and lakes near the road. Our stop in Hokitika itself was informative and longer than originally planned, so we had to think again about where we could stop for the evening as we would not be able to make it to Hanmer Springs. Whilst thinking about this we started towards the Pancake Rocks, which are an unusual limestone formation on the coast. Unfortunately, we arrived shortly after high-tide, but we still managed to get some fairly impressive pictures. As we were leaving Tor couldn't help but think they were missing a golden opportunity by not having some special event there on Shrove Tuesdays...
