What I love about New Zealand is that even the main highways look like little country roads. Today's driving probably wasn't even on a main highway. It's the sort of territory where you check the location of the next petrol station carefully, but when you're ready for a picnic lunch, you just pull off on a little track and find yourself on a pebble beach by the side of the river. We eventually arrived at Marahau on the borders of the Abel Tasman park and it is just as lovely as it was when we left it. We are going to take a couple of days off now.
