Four days walking along the beach is a great intro to tramping the lenght of NZ. The weather has been wonderful, shorts and T shirt conditions the whole way down and I even had a swim in the surf on the Thursday. Got sun burnt yesterday, as I packed in 34 km to reach the holiday camp and a warm shower. Some great campsites at Twilight Beach and again at the Bluffs. and plenty of freash air. Good stuff. More to come as soon as I get the time.
