Day 27 late afternoon, Arthur’s Pass – The long-sufferings itinerary for our last night in Aramoana saw us driving down a relatively short gravel track, across the Mount White bridge and down to the most idyllic deserted spot alongside the Waimakariri River.
This really was the perfect place, it had it all – mountains, blue rushing river, bridge, open space, views to die for, a special place for our last evening meal – rib-eye steaks, new potatoes and stir fried veggies.
Of course with all this beauty there has to be one fly – literally – in the ointment…..SANDFLIES were EVERYWHERE!
But….with a view from our sleeping quarters like this, we could put up with anything!
We wondered if anyone else would arrive to camp at our special out of the way place…luckily for us nobody did!
