Farewell Spit

We drove up to the very top of the South Island to take a look at Farewell Spit and Cape Farewell. The Cape was named by Captain James Cook in 1770. It is the northernmost tip of the South Island, and it is a wild and windy place. We were there on a somewhat rainy, blustery day, but were able to do some beachwalking without precipitation falling on us.
