 We put the GPS on and entered '​Karamea'​. The time was now 2:00 pm, and we had 190 km and a 2 hours 40 minutes journey to get there. Once you're out of Greymouth, you can't get lost. There'​s no other road off until Westport, 100 km to the north. And I love NZ driving! Hardly another vehicle on the road. We'd also forgotten how beautiful this coast is. The sun was out, the surf was up (and spectacular). Unlike other roads in NZ, this one has plenty of places (official and unofficial) where you can pull off and take a photo. We did so, many times. ​ We put the GPS on and entered '​Karamea'​. The time was now 2:00 pm, and we had 190 km and a 2 hours 40 minutes journey to get there.

 About half way between Greymouth and Westport are the Punakaiki Pancake Rocks. The last time we were here (on our South Island Grand Tour in the MG) it had been raining, and the surf wasn't that strong. What a difference the weather makes! It was amazing. And free.  About half way between Greymouth and Westport are the Punakaiki Pancake Rocks.
