The weather forecast for the day sucks (or blows, depending upon your preferred vernacularism!). Locals told me it could clear up, could be damp and misty all day or it could piss down. Glad to see there's a clear consensus on what the forecast actually means
Still, that's typical of a maritime climate and no different to SW England for example.
After a fortifying breakfast, I'm packed up and ready to head along the Catlins coast to Invercargill and beyond.
