Able Tasman Coast Track

Tariga aged ten and I walk and water taxi along the Abel Tasman Coastal walk. We booked our huts one week before we headed off.  Cost per night for me was $25.00 and Tariga was $12.50.

We drove to Marahau Beach and parked at the Aqua Taxi place and waited for our boat ride to Anchorage.
Where dropped off at Anchorage and sorted at the mid afternoon. Munched food and wandered up and down the beach.

Left Anchorage hut at about 0830'ish and it was a nice wee wander.
Took us 3 hours to get to Bark Bay, staying the night at Bark Bay hut. Went for a swim at Medies camp.
Today Tariga's hat was lost. Yesterday it wasn't lost and now at this time it is not lost. A period of lostness and time of found.
Light with orange type edge flows glances on bark, tree edged stuff. Timeless. Eat drink. More walk then off to bed.

Maybe a bit of a sleepin?
Walked to Tonga Quary and had lunch a swim and got a boat to Awaroa Hut. Left our stuff at the hut and walked to Awaroa Lodge for afternoon tea. Yummy. Then off to the beach for some sun. Later back to Awaroa Lodge for evening meal. Awsesome service etc. Tariga and I both had delicious deserts.
The Ravioli was the best I have ever had! What an amazing meal it was. Cook max. Nice walk back.

This is our last day here as we head for home today. I was the last one in bed and the hut warden was impatient to do sweeping and stuff. Boaring. Maybe lunch at Awaroa Lodge? Boat ride back to Marahau and back to what we do to be able to have time in the places of few.
