Today, Marc and I split up to do our own thing. I wanted to see more of Abel Tasman park and wanted to do a hike. I took a water taxi from Kaiteriteri beach to Medlands Park and walked to Torrent Bay. It was an easy 5 KM hike with amazing scenery. I also saw a lot more of the park on foot than I was able to see via kayak, so I’m glad I did the hike. I listened to the new Iron & Wine album as I walked, but spent most of the walk chatting with a couple from England. They took 3 months off from work to travel!
Someday, I would love to walk the entire track. It’s possible to camp overnight in the park, walking from campsite to to campsite, but reservations in the spring and summer months fill up far in advance. Someday… I will let the amazing scenery speak for itself and keep this post mostly word free. Click an icon for a full-size image.
