26th February Wednesday
Woke up to find that I was suffering from vertigo so was staggering around like a drunk (which I wasn't) over breakfast. We still did a lovely 4 hour walk along the Abel Tasman Trail starting at Marahau and walking as far as Stilwell Bay where we stopped for lunch of a crunchy bar and an apple and then walked back to the start.We met up with lots of people who were doing the whole track which takes 3 or 4 days but you have to backpack which we don't do anymore. We then had a proper lunch and made our way to our next overnight stop at Mapua where we were going to stay at the Mapua Leisure Park which has clothes optional areas during February & March. The no clothes area are your pitch , pool and the beach and outside of these areas you have to be clothed which we thought was a bit weird but rules is rules. It wa hot and sunny so we had a nice swim in the pool and did some sunbathing which was very relaxing after our walk. After showering which was also no clothes area hehe we went a walk round town hoping to have fish & chips at the Smokehouse but when we got there it was closed for a staff party. So we went back to the campsite and had fish & chips at their waterfront cafe. Then back to Tiny for a game of cards.
