3RY Update Part:
12th April ‘19
South Island – CHECK ✅
KM Mark Start:
KM Mark Finish:
Meretoto/Ship Cove then Picton then Kaikoura.
Actual KM Today:
Sunny – turned to rain in the arvo.
Departed Furneaux Lodge at 5:30am as I needed to be at Ships Cove before 9:30am to get the water taxi back to Picton and the estimated time frame for that stretch is between 4-5.5hrs.
First thing I noticed when I started were the stags roaring in each of the gullies. They were incredibly loud most of the morning. Made it to Ship Cove in good time and managed to fit in a good look around the Cook Memorials and a swim in the ocean to celebrate the end of my South Island journey! Really happy to have made it this far. A massive thank you to everyone that has helped along the way to make it all possible. To those that I have met along the way, it was an absolute pleasure, thanks for making the trail such an amazing place to be.
Happy to have the SI under my belt but also a little gutted the SI is finished. Looking forward to seeing what surprises the NI has in store for me
