Hokitika, West Coast, South Island, New Zealand: This cool little hippie beach town was such a pleasant place to explore after a cold & rainy night at Lake Kaniere. We discovered a little rainforest garden café on the beach where we took in the sun over lunch. Afterward we walked the beach and discovered Penguinville, an interactive program where local residents build sculptures & little communities out of driftwood. What a beautiful way to create art from tree graveyards on the beach.
