Last Friday we walked the Abel Tasman Track in the North of the South Island of New Zealand. We were dropped of by a boat at the end in Totaranui. We walked first an hour loop further West as we had plenty of time. The rest of the walk was only 2 more hours. We had to wait for a barge who brought us to Awaroa as it was high tight.
Awaroa Bay has a gorgeous beach and I owe a handful of sand of it. The beach was bought by the people of New Zealand for all to enjoy so it wouldn't fall into private hands.
We stayed the night in a lodge and the next day we walked 6 hours resting on beautiful beaches.
It was not easy as there is lots of up and down walking on hills between the Bays
We walked along the coast line from Totaranui to Marahau
Split Apple Rock
Clear blue water
Lots of Wekas on the track, beautiful bush and beaches
