Hokitika, New Zealand - Polarsteps

Franz Josef Glacier - Hokitika - Hokitika Gorge - Lake Kaniere New Zealand, travel day 125 Today I woke up with the alarm clock and not for sunrise, I just wanted to sleep, and who cares about sunrises if there weather isn't good. After a slow morning, shower, breakfast and some internet surfing, we hit the road, ideally to drive about 4h. The road is amazing, rainforest everywhere, snake turns and hundreds of river crossings, a glimpse of the sun too. About lunch we arrived at Hokitika, we walk around the beach, visit the town and market and ended up having fish and chips for lunch. Everything was delicious. After lunch I realized there was a spot I really wantes to visit in the area, the Hokitika Gorge, so our plan was altered again. We visited the place, gorgeous! That water color it's simply mesmerizing unfortunately the rain didn't really let me stay long with the camera but I think I will come back tomorrow. Once the rain kicked us from the mountain river, we headed back to town to watch the sunset, dramatic clouds and strong waves accompanied us, we simply enjoyed the moment. For the night we went to Lake Kaniere, but when we arrive it was dark, so we parked and had dinner.
