Farewell Spit – Triangle Flat Loop Walk

It’s spring holidays and we thought we would go to Farewell Spit to camp in our tent for a night. Weather forecast was great for both days, but it soon became clear to us that the wild West Coast has its own rules at this time of the year.

Starting out at the inner bay side early at 9 am.

Crossing manuka forests…

and wetlands…

and sand dunes, to the outer beach…

where we got sand blasted.

Heading back after a short brunch at a sheltered beach spot,

saying “hi” to the thousands of ewes with their lambs…

that are sun bathing on the Triangle Flat.

Admiring the flowers there (probably considered weeds?).

Back to the car park.
