The first face I came across in 22 kilometers of straight beach tramping.
Apparently yesterday was the hottest December day Invercargill’s had in the past 50 years😓 It was hot and my pack was HEAVYYYY. I decided to take as many breaks as I wanted. Because of this, I made it into Riverton late and nothing was open. I found a patch of huge pine trees🌲 with a clearing underneath and decided to camp there for the night. I was too tired to set up my hammock, so I just slept on the ground in my sleeping bag and prayed that the rain would hold off. God must’ve heard me, because the rain didn’t start until after I woke up and packed up my things😁 #teararoa #newzealand #tramping #northbound #travel #adventure #beach
