We left Hokitika mid-morning, passing over the old rail bridge which is currently being replaced by a more magnificent structure.

We took the back road (Old Christchurch Road) to Otira Highway (the main highway that leads to Arthur’s Pass). It is a very scenic stretch of road.

After our descent, we stopped in a small town for fuel. Then I noticed that the handrail had worked itself loose over the previous couple of days. I also topped up the oil, the level of which had dropped to the low mark.

The couple living opposite the service station obviously recently got married.

We arrived in Christchurch mid afternoon, did some shopping, got a haircut and then rode on to the South New Zealand Conference Camp (Seventh-day Adventist).
