reveries of an amateur long-distance hiker

Day 9

September 9th, 2015

Sep 9 day 9 Puketi Camp to KeriKeri 25 km 7:15-1:00


Hiked hard and fast, but was short, fairly easy day. The highlight was crossing a large set of pastures toward the end of lambing season. Most of the ewes had already lambed (most with twins) though some were about to. A lot of afterbirth in the fields, and I had to walk very circumspectly so as not to disturb the new ones. Arrived in KeriKeri, headed straight to the Holiday Camp to shower, shop and do laundry– all those domestic chores– and a night in a dry bed!
