Debbie does...round the world
8th Apr 2018 - Adventures in New Zealand
The day of rain West Coast style

So as predicted the rain started in the night and hammered down through to about 1530 when it turned to a fine drizzle. Spent the day cozy and warm watching downloaded programmes on the laptop and reading - at times outside in the porch shelter. A few looks from people leaving the camp ground - would have been miserable for them. As it looked like the rain had stopped and the drizzle had set in I went for a wander up the far end of Okariti Beach - the bit you would walk back on fro the Okarito track. Wandered for about an hour. A dad and his kids also out and about building things on the beach. They talk about doing it at low tide and right about that as I got to a point where I would need to climb over rocks to get any further. Drizzle continued so got a bit damp but all good. Then back to the cottage for the evening to warm up and settle in for the evening.
