NZ day 8-9

Day 8

Today we leave Haast and are travelling to unknown destination and will see where we get :) Just out if Haast you come to the Haast river bridge which seems to go on for ever at 737 metres (2,418 ft) it is the longest one-lane road bridge in New Zealand, and the 7th longest New Zealand bridge overall. It has 2 passing bays on it and you have to admire the truckies who drive over it with tandem trailers. After we stopped and took some pics we continued on to Ship Creek where you can do the Dune Lake Walk and there is a little viewing tower you can climb up and get a great vantage over the surrounding area. The waves were crashing onto the beach and the stream was travelling quite fast and our Son had great delight throwing drift wood in and following it till it hit the crashing waves. The beach is littered with washed up trees and and large pebbles instead of sand that we are used to.
