Ari visits-12-Climbing at Paines Ford

We went to the river in the morning and I swam in the swimming hole then we had breakfast in Takaka, in a park, while waiting for our clothes, which we washed. It was then back to hangdog and to the rocks for some climbing. I was not so motivated and took a short nap on the bench while Ari abseiled from one of the climbs.

Later we cooked some emergency energy-refilling lunch and then headed back to the river for another swim. It was a scorching hot day and the water was nice and refreshing although not as cold as I expected.

In the evening we packed our kayaks for an adventure.
