Today we drove from Abel Tasman National Park to Punakaiki on the west coast of New Zealand. The drive took us through wine country again and many small towns on the South Island. We packed sanwiches and ate a picnic lunch along the way. We stopped at the Pancake Rock Blowholes. Unfortunately, we arrived after high tide which is when the blowholes are most active. For dinner we ate at the Punakaiki Tavern.
We are staying at the Punakaiki Resort and had a beautiful sunset from our room balcony.
