We had lunch today in the main part of Hokitika today where there are plenty of little shops, cafes, stores, and even the National Kiwi Centre (where, yes, we did see a kiwi, but weren't allowed to take photos!). We strolled a bit past the town and found an open beach area leading to the Tasman Sea. The tide was pretty high, and the waves were pretty strong. Kind of cool to see.
can you make out what this very temporary sculpture spells?
