Due to forecasted weather we opted to head west (great decision). On arrival in Greymouth we discovered that we had a lack of power. Something we will need to look at when we get home. It appears that the leisure batteries are only charged by solar. (obviously a change made by the previous owner, but not what we would like) If there is no sun they are not charging. The decision was made to spend a couple of days connected to electricity to boost the batteries. Then we moved on to Hokitika where we spent a couple of days sitting out the remnants of the cyclone.
