We left very early to be, with the rising of the sun, at the Pancake Rocks.

We hoped to find a better light than at sunset but we were disappointed .

We continued our journey and, in mid- morning , we arrived at Shantytown , a reconstruction of a mining town at the time of the gold rush . It was not very interesting .

The small town of Hokitika, a jade work centre is more interesting.

We went to the nearby Hokitika Gorge, a fantastic gorge characterized by the wonderful turquoise water of the homonymous river .
