Today we set out on a little road/walk trip to Wainui Falls in Abel Tasman National Park.
Here's a map (click here to view if reading in email).
As always, the drive is part of the fun, this one wending its way past gorgeous Wainui Bay.
Like so many other treks in NZ, this one begins in the midst of a farm.
Still, we persisted. We'll walk the path to the obstruction and be reminded it's the journey, not the destination.
Out of the farmland and up into a forest dense with ferns, nikau palms, and rata trees, the Wainui River frothing below.
A sign well-told
We knew it was coming...
...but still. Never underestimate the damage that can be done by a single well-positioned rock.

I'm in love with NZ's farmland/national park convergence.
Good night from dreamy Golden Bay.
