It was another very quiet day for me, as I carried on from where I left off the day before: more journal writing, relaxing and eating. I didn't leave the hostel until 16.30 when I went down to the beach with Danika and Deborah (a girl we had first met in the 'Rongo' hostel in Karamea a few days before) to watch the sunset. It was another beautiful sight, with the sky a mixture of pink and blue, reflecting off the water battered rocks to give it a very atmospheric feel.

Later in the evening, we tried to watch the first of the 'Lord of The Rings' movies on Deborah's laptop but it wouldn't work. We were quite disappointed and I would have enjoyed watching the movie again now that I was familiar with some of the scenery, the movie having been shot on location in New Zealand. It had been another lazy day and I was looking forward to moving on to Franz Josef the following day,but also grateful to have had a few days off from any sort of activity.
