Ready for the south

My friends have left us, we have been driving around to the inner mountains around Nelson Lakes National Park and to the Farewell Split (where we had a VERY LONG walk through sand dunes and over a sand desert), a family toured the Queen Charlotte Sound for 4 days and now our guests for the tour to the south have arrived. So much happening in such a short time. Today we stocked up, we can't starve now. And still we're hoping to catch fish for fresh protein. We do not carry much meet. Tomorrow we're leaving for the last anchorage in Queen Charlotte sound, then we'll make our was back to somewhere close to Abel Tasman national park where we wait for the right weather window to head south. Exciting.
