On the way to Lake Mahinapua - the destination of our party night with the whole of our Kiwi bus - we ended up stopping off to see some pancake rocks and blow holes. Funnily enough the rocks look like pancakes layered on each other! Lake Mahinapua was literally in the middle of nowhere so what can we say - abs nothing to do apart from dress up in fancy dress and get drunk at a small motel owned by the funniest old man called Les who looked like father christmas. We think it was just a stop over as it was too far to travel to Franz Josef in just one day. No complaints though as we all had a brilliant time. It was a fancy dress party and the theme was to design your own super hero, we had one hour to get our costumes and ended up running around Greymouth like super market sweepers! We decided to dress up as something we all have dear to our hearts - ALCOHOL! With this smirnoff girl, blue wkd girl, guiness girl rose from the warehouse (where everyone gets a bargain).
Good effort was made by everyone and we had a brilliant night dancing away and living up to our super hero personas complete withy booze guns that we squirted at lots of people! Amongst the party goers were geek boy, spoon man, leprechauns and no less than 5 santas - yep everyone dressed up in what they wanted rather than keeping to the them - the night was a blast and completely hilarious! At the end of the night D, Chris, Round and Si tried to find the actual lake but Chris managed to fall in a ditch in the pitch black and we had no torches - only glow worms to guide us - drunkards surprise surprise didnt make the lake and the guys kept trying to scare us with Blair Witch inuendos - was scary at the time ha ha!!!!!! xxxxx
