Corin’s Roadtrip: Day 2 – Motueka

It’s 3:45pm and we ‘re sitting at our campsite at top10 holiday park. We’ve got the best site in the park (at least from Liv’s point of view which funnily enough, often coincides with ours).

We flew down to Christchurch on Jetstar on Monday morning (great experience) but had to wait for a couple of hours at Maui before picking up our camper van. For those not in the know, we’ve got a special relocation deal to take the van back to Auckland in 5 days for $5 per day. Megan checked, the same trip if you chose to do it would cost $2000.

Once we got the van we went to visit a relative of Meg’s and then drove north. We stopped for dinner and then drove until we were too tired and stopped at a DOC campsite.

Today we drove pretty much straight to Motueka with a brief stop at an animal petting farm and had lunch. At this point we got some frantic calls from our friends and family who knew about our trip. They were relieved to hear we were well out of harms way but our thoughts are all for those in Christchurch. When we got to the holiday park there was a man leaving to go back to Christchurch who had not been able to get old of his family.

    The next morning we took a little hike around the park, caught showers, packed up our bikes and moved on down the trail. Our goal for the day was to pick blueberries at Graysmarsh Farm , check out town and then make our way up to the Dungeness Spit which was recommended to us by our friend Roxanne. As we neared town, right on the trail we came to the Sequim Chamber of Commerce where we got a little wi-fi and had a snack. The weather in Sequim is amazing. Those who know call Sequim the blue hole and it does receive some of the driest and bluest weather in Washington. Sequim is located ina rain shadow and receives about 18″ of rain a year. The views of the Olympic range were stunning all day long.
