Pancake rocks.

I took the bus from Nelson, bright and early on Sunday morning, at 7:30 am. The drive down along the west coast of the South Island to Hokitika was incredible. I had only gotten about 5 hours of sleep the night before, but I was wide awake for the entire journey. There was just so much to look at. The coast and the mountains and the hills and valleys and twisting-winding roads were just so interesting.

Buses in NZ make several stops throughout the day. Seriously. There's morning tea, noon break, afternoon tea, dinner tea, more tea. They always pick really interesting rest stops too. On this trip the bus stopped at a place called Pancake Rocks. There was a short walk along the coast to look out over the Tasman and see these interesting rock formations.

There were also two cafes at this little roadside stop and both of them had pancakes as the special for the day. Who wants to bet that the special each and every day is pancakes? I'd put money on it. And I only gamble in Brisbanee
