The weather forecast is not poor for the pre-Easter, it’s distinctly horrible.
My plan to climb Mt Richmond, now an annual event, will have to be postponed. I would have to settle into some less energetic pursuits.
By Good Friday it was clear the worst was over, Saturday was looking good, Sunday okay, but after that fine weather was predicted. Maybe I could slip away after all.
As it turned out it was Sunday morning before I jumped on the $20 bus to take me to Marahau.
My fallback trip was up the little used Inland Track in Abel Tasman National Park. With all this bad weather around I should have the place to myself. Who else wants to venture out when the weather has been so so bad?
This is how it went . . .
