Did some browsing at boutique clothing and craft store Roadside Attraction in Waikouaiti.
Otherwise I went camping. The tent I stayed in was a rather large wooden tent with a corrugated iron roof. I had all the comforts of home with me, including my bed, my own back yard and the kitchen sink.
And all the books.
Yep, I remained in situ. But as almost everybody else left town, it has been very peaceful here.
