Storm blasts us!

Howling winds of up to 45 knots and heavy rain made for an uneasy first night camped out. The wind persisted to-day with a SW ocean swell of 4 metres. We decided not to attempt any kayaking and hoped the sea would calm down for tomorrow.

Had a good look around Karitane and met several of the local people. In the afternoon we kayaked up the Waikouatiti River to State Highway No. 1.

Enjoyed our stay at Karitane.
