Debbie does...round the world
17th Sep 2017 - Adventures in New Zealand
Hooker Valley but wet again

Woke up to persistent rain again and the threat of snow -happy re the snow aspect. Morning spent back down watching a documentary and then more reading. Good thing I have a kindle. Mid afternoon the rain slowed to a constant drizzle so decided to brave the elements. Drove up to the campsite and walked some of the Hooker Valley track to the bridge. Not many people out there due to the weather. Loved looking around the site of the Old Hermitage and the ruins that are left. Beautiful walk and would have loved to gone as far as you can go but not to be until next time.

I would have to say that I thought TheHermitage staff to be wonderful. Couldnt really fault the stay here - guess food was expensive but you could actually taste the difference. Next time I guess it will be back to a standard room. Wee bit jealous of the people who get to work and live in the Village - what a fabulous piece of New Zealand to live in.
