Onwards to Hokitika!

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.
