Getting ready to go with Brent, who's a very hard case :) The boat is basically a V8 engine driving a water pump :) AKA a Hamilton Jet.
Panoramic of the river before we set off.
It was a very flat calm day, the river was glassy and smooth most of the way up.
the Bridge to Nowhere. Quite a sight in the middle of the New Zealand bush. Quite a lot of history around it too.
A view from the bridge, looking at the remains of the old swing bridge.
A bit of a mess around with TiltShiftGen on the iPhone. This was the top of a small waterfall, about 3 feet high, on the side of the track.
We are planning on coming back in kayaks sometime next summer (or the one after) to do the 3 day trip down the river.
