Golden Bay to Abel Tasman day 1

Unfortunately, because of our weather setback in Wellington we couldn't stay at Shambala in Golden Bay very long. We had a kayak rental booking and campsite reservation in Abel Tasman National Park!

More photos with GPS maps here.

We headed back over Takaka Hill and got some incredible morning views:

After a quick training on the kayaks and applying heaps of sunscreen the boat dropped us off at Onemana with our gear and no kayak about 1 pm. Nearly and hour later the boat showed up with our kayak:

After only a little paddling we arrived at our campsite desitnation, Mosquito Bay:

Since it was such a short paddle that day, we went over to Bark Bay to do a little more exploring before relaxing:
