After overnighting in Picton we headed for Westport (~300km). This was an all day trip with a number of stops. First stop in Blenhiem at BV Gourmet Cafe/Deli, for great coffee and food.
As we drove along State highway 63 near a Wyeburn Forest we came across a road-side farm stall selling just the best and freshest Raspberrys and Boysenberrys - they didn't last long!
A brief stop at Lake Rotoiti, brief as it was icy cold and there were bugs.
Birds became a bit of a theme for our holiday, more later.
A walk through the bush at Lyell, to the cemetery on a steep bush covered hillside. The scenery had certainly changed - we were definitely on the West Coast.

We spent four nights at Omau, Cape Foulwind, ~10 minute drive from Westport.
