Sunday 28th Feb

Sunrise at Pounwea - view from outside our cabin at 6.55am just after Civil Defense knocked on the door to evacuate us because of the tsunami threat!

Bugger the tsunami, we got evacuated from Pounawea and were send back to Owaka to higher ground.

We were allowed back later in the morning so got the Collage class almost done before we were re-evacuated around 11.30am. At that stage the weekend was abandoned! Around 2pm we went back to Pounawea to pack up but let me tell you we were very nervous about it. The spring tide was very high and you could see the surges coming in and out and down the river. We couldn't get out of there quick enough!

Later in the afternoon we took off down to one of the waterfalls...

I can imagine these would be gorgeous with more water in them!
