After going up to the Denniston Plateau we continued our journey to Karamea.  
We arrived there for a late lunch as the Denniston detor was not on the itinerary.  As there were no cafe's our lunch was supplied by the motel and comprised a selection of sandwiches with tea or coffee.  After this we headed to the start of the Heaphy track where we went across a swing bridge and did a loop walk at the start of the track. 


  1. Karamea, isolated, windswept, and beautiful. Your last photo, that is really beautiful, and so much a part of that west coast area.

    1. Yes, it is a magical spot isn't it. The fact that cyclone Debbie circled around us but left us dry made it even more special.

  2. I have been unable to read blogs since January. I try to write one post per month, writing a little bit in the evenings, and that’s about it. Jim’s Alzheimer is progressing and it is not easy, then trying to still get things organized for a future move. I went back to your past posts and saw that you sold your house – lovely for you. I am sending all my belated wishes as well for your happiness – congratulations on your wedding. I noticed that your husband is very handy – that is so useful. Jim now cannot even change a light bulb and me, with my 2 canes, it is a challenge too. I’m due to be operated on one knee this summer. I enjoyed looking at all your beautiful pictures of your trips – what a lovely area.

  3. Your blog is very useful for me.I really like you post.Thanks for sharing.
