It was another short walk today, especially since I arrived at an optional tidal estuary crossing just on low tide. I sludged and squished my way across in bare feet, loving it. I finished the last few kilometers without putting my shoes back on, and felt like some kind of wild adventurer on a desert island.
Anchorage is a popular destination in Abel Tasman National Park, and the weka know it. I’ve never met such confident and cheeky ones!
It wasn’t as chilly last night as it was at Totaranui, because the clouds have arrived. Rain is forecast overnight tonight, which is probably a blessing in disguise.
The campsite is busy tonight and I’ve just spotted some campers lighting a fire in the fire ring, so I think I’ll join them before bed.
