Yesterday we had a tour of the yurt positioned near us in the campground. Lovely Rita, from the South Island's west coast, and her father made it themselves (!). It sits on a trailer bed and can be collapsed and driven to the next location, handy for Rita who works at the ski fields.
Inside is everything you might need--bed, kitchen, lounging area. A lot of space.
A welded plate at the top accepts the numerous hand-skinned stays.
It's more beautiful than my pictures show.
And Rita also has our view. In this shot, the clear plastic is peeled away on the outside to let fresh air.
Our camping pals Hannah and Logan joined us here at Glendhu Bay and this afternoon they hosted a pancake party during the last long hour of sun.
That's their cute rig at left.
The chef making magic in her wee kitchen
Buckwheat pancakes with coconut yogurt, bananas, manuka honey, and blueberries, oh my. T'was a real treat.
We'll miss these two when we head out tomorrow for Glenorchy (we think), but NZ is a neighborhood and we're sure our paths will cross again.
