The first big trip on the South Island was to Able Tasman National Park. It included a scenic ferry trip along the coastline before dropping us off, giving us time to hike back along the coastal paths, dipping into a bit of rainforest. The weather was great which gave great views. One notable moment was when I spotted some rather colourful mushroom- now as a budding David Bailey I thought I'd try and get some close up snaps of them.... this only lead to me slipping down the cliff face and ending up in a plie of branches!!!
