Farewell Spit

Our first rainy day on the South Island struck as we first arrived in Abel Tasman National Park. After initially postponing our kayaking trip, Zorina and I spent some time taking advantage of the awesome facilities at the hostel...movie theater, pool table, and darts to name a few. After a few hours though, our friendly hostel manager suggested (or ordered) us to make the most of our time in the area and suggested we make the trip to the Farewell Spit at the very northwestern most point of the South Island. The drive is actually the highest altitude you can drive a car in New Zealand and certainly did not disappoint despite the weather.
