Tues 9 Feb - Goodbye Robin, Hello Murchison

Very sad to see Robin go home again early this morning. Stocked up on groceries in Nelson before hitting the road for Murchison.  Abbie drove the van this time, following the rest of us who were in the camper (as Nana was feeling a bit under the weather).  A rainy trip but the most amazing scenery.  So many glades, super fresh and green looking.  Loved it!  Could happily drive this road often!

We all noticed many of the trees had black trunks and branches as if they had been burnt at some stage.  Later discovered this is the damage that wasps are doing!

Pulled in to our very first NZMCA (NZ Motorhome and Caravan Association) park for the night in Murchison.  People were very friendly and helpful.  Got a great park next to the washing lines.  Perfect as all the sheets needed washing the next day, and the forecast was looking fine.

Enjoyed an amazing salad dinner, but sadly had to finish our bottle of wine on my own :( Missing Robin
