On to the Next Island. March 7, 2016.
After 2 days of eating and relaxing I am ready to walk. Today I am taking the ferry to Stewart Island. I plan to walk the Northwest Circuit. This is where I have the best chance of seeing a kiwi bird in the wild during the day. The circuit is 125 km and has huts. It is supposed to be hard, muddy and gorgeous. The difficulty, the spacing of the huts and the decreasing light hours makes it take 8 to 10 days. My pack is so heavy with food. Ugh!
