Onwards to Invercargill

We had a final rest day in Riverton during which I scrubbed all my gear and Madeleline read.  The following day we walked out of Riverton and along the Oreti beach heading for Invercargill.  

The beach was beautiful and deserted except for the Oyster catchers (black birds with red beaks).  The last time we had seen them was on the north island - it really felt like the journey was going full circle and nearing completion.
