We finally left the kayak school and the town of Murchison! We hopped in the car and drove for about three hours to a town called Hokitika on the West Coast of the South Island. We drove along the beautiful, deserted coastline that reminded me of a tropical paradise. Tonight, we are staying at my parents’ friends’ house a little ways out of town. Keith and Jo are very nice and the house is more like a cabin. It is in the wilderness and they have an outside fire pit and an outhouse. For dinner, we had goat meat from a goat that Keith and Jo had raised. I was impressed by their generosity and effort to feed us their own home cooked food. The house is warm and I am getting sleepy. I am excited for another day in New Zealand.
