I Am Happy.....

..... to report that we have finally reached our wintering over destination; Kaiteriteri in the Tasman District and right on the edge of the beautiful Abel Tasman National Park.

This is the view out our windows, across the road from a calm little bay and a golden sand beach. The lady in the office of the Kaiteriteri Beach Motor Camp said help yourself to a site, choose wherever you like, take two sites if needed. So we did, two prime sites, right on the front row. The winter rates are $20 a night for two people with a minimum of 7 days.  There are only a handful of other vans here & it's a huge park. I'm sure the beach and camp ground would be wall to wall people in the summer but so far we would have been lucky to see six people & two cars go past (luckily a dead end road)

We'll likely be here for at least two weeks, possibly more. We'll have a chance to recharge our batteries (human), I can catch up on my blogs & sort photos while David goes fishing. That's after a spring-clean of the vehicles, inside & out! We'll also do some exploring along the coast of the national park in the Takacat dinghy and walk part of the Abel Tasman Track, one of New Zealand's Great Walks & arguably the most beautiful. After that we may move over to Takaka for another few weeks.

Back to my catch up blogs soon....


  1. Glad your up in our area, Christine & I would love to meet you both for a coffee on the weekend, hope the weather stays nice.
    Cheers Jimu
