Another big day today. So far so good on the blister front. Most of us left around the same time so a trail of bobbing backpacks stretching into the distance but well spaced apart.
Tide was higher up against the dunes so occasionally scampering to avoid a sudden rush of ocean trying to wet our feet. Another fine day, if a little overcast. Was hot later in the afternoon. Hukatere Lodge campsite was about a km from the beach at the end of the day, along a gravel road. The little camp kitchen and host Gabby was busy with relaxing. Pitched my tent and back to the kitchen where Gabby had organised pancakes.
Was a lot of fun making sweet and savoury pancakes over a few hours. Felt like a little family for the first time as it cooled outside and the rain started.
Felt a little sorry for my self though that evening back in my little tent with the rain pouring outside and again in the morning with a little pool of water at the bottom of my tent.
