|Our day started with a stop at a lookout point over a seal colony. Cool to see but not as impressive as the ones I saw in Australia. Our second stop was in Punakaiki to see the pancake rocks and blowholes along the coast. The rocks are stacks of rocks that look like thin pancakes piled up.
Our last stop was Lake Mahinapua where we stayed at the Mahinapua Hotel also known as the 'Poo Pub'. We were also told we were having a fancy dress party at the hotel so we stopped at a cheap shop on the way to pick up costumes for our party. It was supposed to be a superheroes theme but the guys all desperately wanted to dress up as girls so there were some random outfits.
Later at night we all walked to the lake where there are little glow worms all in the bush. Not very exciting but 10 of us drunkards trying to find the lake in the absolute pitch black with no flashlights was pretty interesting!
