Lucy and David at an Abel Tasman beach

Abel Tasman National Park is on the north side of the North Island fronting on the Cook Strait. You can hike (or tramp as Kiwis called it) for up to three days on this shoreline or do what Lucy, Bryan and I did which is to walk for just a few hours to the nearest beach, like the one in this pic. The only other people we met on this beach were an Australian couple who shot this photo of us. And there are beaches too numerous to count just like this one. The water is freezing during the New Zealand winter.
