Fantastic was to see Abel Tasman

What a terrific day experience! We saw beautiful scenery on the boat ride to our kayak start point, and then got up close and personal with the beaches, rock formations, birds and fur seals. We watch baby seals playing in the water from 20 feet away and saw stingrays swimming right under us!! The paddling was not hard and the pace relaxed. Then we had a terrific lunch on the beach, swapping stories with the friendly guide and other travelers. Our afternoon hike thru the rain forest was beautiful as well. Waterfalls, swing bridges, beautiful coastal views - amazing. A terrific day!
