With the weather forecast to deteriorate we opted to leave Timaru and get within striking distance of Arthurs Pass.
Passing through Ashburton we picked up a couple of little things for the motorhome before heading for Kirwee for the night. Staying behind the local tavern we treated ourselves to a meal out. Lovely but too much to eat that the proprietor offered us a catty (doggy) bag to take with us.
We had intended staying at Cobden Bridge in Greymouth for the night but once we arrived we noticed a power (or lack of) problem. We opted to head to a motor camp and power to assess the problem. Now all hooked up and the rain is hammering down on the roof. Think we made the right decision.
