Back to Kaikoura
Kaikoura Travel Blog› entry 5 of 17 › view all entries
We reached a place called Maruia Springs at which there was a resort with the hot springs and there was snow around but because it was still early we continued to Hanmer Springs but it was raining and there was no snow so we had lunch and Andrew decided that he would like to go back to Kaikoura, so we set off again.
We tried to take an alternate route through Mt Lyford but the road was closed so we went towards Cheviot and back up.
It wasn't much further that way but when we got to Kaikoura it was raining and we couldn't see the mountains like we could the other day.
Oh well, we thought, we would stay the night and see how the weather would be in the morning. We ended up in a hotel. Not my idea of good accomodation but Andrew said ok so we stayed and had dinner there, so I had to have crayfish to compensate!
Before going to bed we decided that we would be up and gone by 7a.m. tommorrow.
