Today we spent our first day exploring the Abel Tasman national park. It’s about 20 minutes away from our hostel and is great for walking and kayaking, it has amazing white sand and clear water! We did a 2 hour coast walk to Apple Tree Bay… unfortunately along the way I stubbed my toe and prettttty much broke it (ok maybe not broke but very bruised!). We had a paddle in the sea and chilled out on the beach before heading back.
In the afternoon we drove up to Split Apple Rock and hung out at the beach there until sunset to get some cool pictures. You can swim out to it but it was getting pretty chilly so we will just kayak out to it tomorrow instead!
For dinner we drove over to Kaiteriteri and got some food at Gone Burger. They were absolutely huge and so tasty! I’m really going all out on the veggie burger front in NZ.
