The Launch Trip

After a quick tidy up around camp and only a little drama we were off on our launch trip to the Abel Tasman National Park. Chris had had some trouble controlling her car on the road to Kaiteriteri and thought that something drastic had happened to her steering so we quickly changed cars and she took mine to Marahau for the parent pick-up. Unfortunately in the change-over my raincoat was left in the backseat. For a while there I was left wearing the emergency Nelson City Council rubbish bag as a raincoat. Not the most flattering of rainware!!!

The trouble with Chris' car came from a large diesel slick covering the road which made the road extra slippery. The road was soon to be closed by police until it was made safe again.

In this photo we line up ready to board the Abel Tasman Experiences Wilson's Launch. We are very grateful to the launch company for their group booking they were offering us. It was an excellent deal which allowed everyone to experience on of our national treasures for a very reasonable price.

We thought the launch trip was awesome and got to see Split Apple Rock along the way.
