Wind really went for it at 4am as our trusty tent struggled to stay pegged in.

At 8am we packed away in the wind and had the last of the cocopops then headed to a more sheltered area for one hell of a refreshing swim!

We stripped down from cold weather gear to bikini and boardies and ran from the car to the lake, dived under, screamed, then ran back to the car. Passersby must have thought we were nutters.

Drove to mt cook alpine village where there was a bad weather report. This, in combination with Jeremys blisters and Victoria’s increasingly painful neck (sleepless and cold nights ought to do it!) made us keep driving.

Next stop was the Clay Cliffs down a 10km dusty road where we met some yocalls who had never been out of NZ. Stuck in a quick visit to New Zealands largest earth dam, was a pretty big mound of earth.

Trucked on to Oamaru where we stayed at The Olive Grove owned by a very annoying kiwi who told Jeremy off for driving (5km/h) too fast down his driveway. But there were cool fluffy cows so everything was all good.
