Travelling with Sue (who has MS) is always difficult but we planned to see a bit of NZ this time while visiting our daughter near Opotiki. Webooked 2 nights, then added a third and a fourth. I think that Carol thought we were never going to leave.

This was my final stop after almost 2 weeks of hiking the Milford Track, Abel Tasman, Bay of Islands and other areas of the north and south islands with friends. It was a perfect end to a great trip.
