 This is another view of the scenery as we travelled from Greymouth to Punakaiki.

Punakaiki Resort is where we stayed overnight and it is located right next to the beach and a short distance from Pancake Rocks.

Our rooms were on the end and we entered from the rear of the building.

After check in we still had time to hike two of the hikes nearby.  This was the Pororari River hike.

There is a gate so that only hikers are on the trail and not bicycles or motor bikes.

As we hiked along we felt that something was watching us but it was only a ceramic frog.

After that hike which went along the river we took the Truman Hike which takes you down to the ocean.  It was beautiful because it was at the end of the day and it was beginning to be high tide and the sun was slowly going down.

As the tide gets higher it beats against the rocks with such force that it creates huge water formations.

It was a beautiful sunset and an end to a beautiful day.
