Different daily routine! Up at 07:30 for 08:00 90 minute yoga session with Mary Jo and a group of 4 ladies having their own retreat. Then enjoyed a full organic breakfast prepared by Steve followed by another hours massage from Chara. My shoulders are still tight, so may need further work in the next few days!
Steve lent me one of his fat tyre mountain bikes to get into and around town. I went through my pack contents and selected non essential items which I haven’t used and posted them home. A total of 800g.
The bike helped to get out to the Hammer Hardware store on the north-western edge of Hanmer Springs where I resupplied with gas and bug spray.
In the chip shop, I met Brad and Lisa from Auckland, whom I had seen on the trail. They are walking the South Island TA having quit their jobs and before they start looking for the next ones.
It’s a hot day in Hanmer, in the low 30s, a good day not to be walking. But a fine day to be under shade at another pub. 😊
