We headed straight towards Hokitika Gorge. A long drive with a view of acres and acres of farmlands followed by mountainous roads to reach the spot. It’s a beautiful greenish water gorge and worth that extra miles of drive. We returned to our booked place and were greeted by our host and the friendly furry dog Bruce. We went out for a walk and discovered the town. Hokitika is a small town with huge houses. There are few essential stores and tons of restaurants and hotels. During the Goldrush time, this place was a prime location but now mostly houses are vacant and people have moved to city areas. We enjoyed the view of the sea for some time and returned to our place after having a seafood platter and coffee. The temperature was close to 14 degrees. We had a conversation with our host who gladly explained us about the town and it’s history.
