The weather forecast for the Westland district for the next 24 hours was for 150mm of rain. It started sometime during the night and has been persistent ever since.
The plan for the day was to travel the 60 odd kilometre’s to the Hari Hari hotel were there is a motor camp with all facilities. After 4 days at the NZMCA camp at Franz Josef the talk was of showers and washing machines. The journey was quite slow as there is a long stretch of road where speeds of only 25 –35kph are attainable.
Except for getting the laundry done it’s a case of sit and wait for the weather conditions to improve.
