There was a caravan park opposite the kayak office so we decided to try our luck and run in to take a free shower as we weren’t planning on staying there for the night, we geared ourselves up and towel in hand we both ran into the shower block only to see that we had to pay $2 each and we had no change, so in true Benny Hill style we ran back out a couple of minutes later, got in the car and drove off hopefully unnoticed. A little further down the road we passed a 'Top 10 Holiday Park’ in other words ‘the posh one’, now they are pretty good on security at this chain so I said to Justin we will get caught driving straight passed reception and running in the shower block, but he disagreed. So onward we drove right past the reception office and parked outside of the shower block, we agreed to shower within 5 minutes and meet back at the car, I showered within that time really fast wash and I sat in the car and waited, and waited, and waited until he eventually came strolling out of the block without a care in the world 10 minutes after we agreed, thankfully we didn’t get caught, however as we drove back out of the main entrance the man from reception started walking toward our car so we stopped and I was left to get us out of this situation so I said that we were looking around the facilities and we were going to decide later on, he asked where we had been looking so I said " Oh the showers, kitchen etc" he was fine and agreed it’s good to look about and we all said goodbye. It was so funny because Justin was sat with wet hair and our towels were hung on our washing line in the back of the car....so obvious we had had a shower! Nice and clean we found a campsite that charged $5 each a night so we decided to eat out and grab a bag of chips as a treat!
We had cereal in bed the following morning the headed back to Nelson with a stop off to McDonalds McCafe for a cuppa to try and fill up our loyalty card (6th cup of tea is free), then as Tony was overheating again decided to stop at an electrical shop so Justin could fit a switch that would turn the fan on to prevent it overheating, so in my true Debbie Mcgee style assisted by passing him the cable and tools and stuff...Its Magic! Switch fitted, fan on, Tony cool and onwards we headed to Kaikoura.
