This morning after Jenny and Robin had had their All English Breakfast cooked by our wonderful hosts, the forecast rain was only slight when we headed off to view this blowhole. One of the Catlin’s major attractions and found 200 metres inland from the sea, it is 55 metres deep, 144 metres long and 68 metres wide. Unfortunately tidal conditions were not quite right today with the offshore winds required only slight when we were there at full tide at 1pm.
Passing through Owaka “Place of the Canoe” we came across this unusual collection of teapots.

After a quick picnic lunch and the weather beginning to deteriorate we decided that we would head back to our camp and spend the rest of the afternoon there. Pauline and I set off into the back paddock to look for mushrooms and we both came away with 3 each. Ours we had tonight with our fillet steak. Yummy.
