Tim and Cindie on the road, so if you ever wonder why, think of this photo.

Cindie working on the computer, at the railroad station in Greymouth, yes they had wifi.

This is what happens to a tire when the brake pad rubs on the tire, I had to buy a new one in Greymouth.


A wet weka.

Cindie with her domestique, Tim

Two peas in a pod, Tim and Cindie.

The road north of Haast, we are in a rainforest and ever the culverts are lined with moss and the dead trees are lined with vegetation, Oh am I glad it is sunny.

The beach at Bruce Bay, a beauty.

 


Haast to Wanaka

(February 9 - 15, 2008)


Traffic is light and the scenery beautiful.


Haast River looking back toward Pleasant Flat, the canyon begins to narrow here.
