One main reason for coming down to Hokitika was to attend Sami’s cousin’s wedding.
The wedding itself was awesome. The ceremony was out at a local lake in the Hokitika area, the weather was great, sunny and 20 degrees (which was very good since it tends to rain a lot in Hokitika!). The reception was at a local restaurant in Greymouth (a town about 20 minutes North of Hokitika).
It was a night full of dinner, drinks, dancing and all around fun catching up with a lot of Sami’s family who had made it down for the wedding. We closed down the party dancing and then went home to get some rest.
A few days of recovery until we were off on our next adventure – hiring a car and heading North along the West Coast up to Auckland on the North Island.
