Next stop Hokitika. After coffee we walked down to the beach and along to the river estuary. In The Luminaries (by Eleanor Catton) there is a very good account of how tricky the entrance was for boats serving the gold mining town in the 1800's with the beach littered with wrecks. Now it looks an impossible entrance for anything other than kayaks and surfers.
