Boats, Ducks and Heading North

We woke facing the snow capped mountains and left early to catch the boat back to Wellington and the North Island. Arrived with a good hour and bit to spare. This time I had the dodgy boat journey (‘tis only fair we share these things). I really am going to miss the southern island.

We stayed at Otarki and I slept like a trucker. The trucks, trains or ducks didn’t stop me getting my beauty sleep. Matt however didn’t fair so well and the ducks were waiting for us as we left. We had a 5 hour car journey towards the Waitomo caves which we are both looking forward to exploring tomorrow.
