Day Four

Wow, this is the 2nd camping ground with Internet access. Yesterday we left Omarama and made our way over the Lindis Pass, past Cromwell to our first stop at the Clyde Dam for some pictures. Following this we pottered onto Alexandra where Mark upset a bee so much that it gave him a sting on his eyebrow.

On the road again and into some beautiful country around Roxbrough where the weather was just beginning to change. By the time we hit Lawrence it was spitting so we stopped and had a nice lunch before putting on our wet weather gear and hitting the road again. The roads were quite wet all they to Balclutha where we stopped for gas and chatted with another biker heading for the Mini's Return start as well.

We then just rode down to Owaka for the night. This morning saw us cruising the Catlins and checking out Curio Bay before finally heading into Invercargill where the sun is fair blazing down on us. Today also saw Mark's Bandit in at Southern Suzuki for a new chain and front sprocket as the old chain was well and truly toast. Tonight we head over to Bluff to check in with the Rusty crew before the ride kicks off properly tomorrow morning.

Still can't wait...
